MORE than 1,000 people have signed a petition calling for a popular Barnsley pub to be saved from demolition.
Plans to close and then flatten the Kings Head in Darton Lane, Mapplewell, and replace it with a Sainsbury's store will go before the council's planning committee on Tuesday.
The pub's owners Punch Partnership have made the application. And the company says it plans to close the pub even if the application to redevelop the site is rejected.
