WETHERSPOONS have been given permission to vary details of their new pub in Darwen town centre.

The Old Chapel was handed over to the chain by the developers yesterday for final works before it opens on January 23.

Blackburn with Darwen Council has granted permission for alterations to the original plans for outside balustrades at the new pub.

The new owners of the former Railway Road Methodist Church will be allowed to board over three windows , install a new fire escape door and change the beer garden surfacing.

Formerly a supermarket, it will be the first time for several years the upstairs floor is used.

beautiful, beautiful building (even if originally dedicated to a ridiculous belief in god (hope that that gets up your nose rev logan). if i remember rightly the chapel is across the road from the market with businesses operating out of spaces excavated under the pavement, am i right about this? the bus station at darwen could have been designed to be more respectful to its venerable neighbours, there is huge potential here but little in the way of imagination, the street furniture and overall ambience resembles that of of b&q!

Went for breakfast today. Stunning refurbishment. First time in Darwen for about 30 years and will be visiting this impressive pub again. Architecturally probably the best pub in East Lancs.
