Shame about the Beehive, though from Lyns photos I doubt if there was ever a chance of it re-opening. I remember many happy hours spent there when some friends ran it in the late 1960s. No surprise it "happened" to catch fire. I think any pub owned by one the the pub companies can consider itself lucky if it does not spontaneously combust
