On the day it was announced that Dowdeswell Estates and Gloucester City Council have agreed a deal to restore the Fleece Hotel , Punchline-Gloucester.com was given exclusive access to the site.

Punchline editor Mark Owen took a tour of the 15th century building that has lain dormant for the past 15 years.

He spoke with Rod Jenner and Paul Halfpenny from Dowdeswell Estates, Paul James the leader of Gloucester City Council and Councillor Dawn Melvin about the redevelopment.

Punchline also had a look around the building that was first opened as an inn in 1497 to serve pilgrims who were flocking to Gloucester to visit the tomb of King Edward II.
