Storm Brendan has delayed re-plating work on the Castle Barge, moored next to Trent Bridge in Newark

Bad weather has delayed Newark's floating pub from having important repairs carried out.

The Advertiser reported last week that the Castle Barge, moored on the River Trent next to Trent Bridge, would be closed on Monday for up to six weeks because the boat’s bottom needs to be re-plated and repainted.

The barge was due to be towed by two tugboats up the River Trent to the dry dock at Hull, which is 100 miles away, on Tuesday in a voyage that could take between two or three days, depending on the tidal patterns at the estuary.
