Further to our previous updates, we can confirm that the fire at The Ship, Levington was deemed to be accidental and that the most probable cause was a burning ember released from the chimney setting fire to the thatch. No issues were found with the maintenance of the stoves and chimney or in the methodology of our staff with regard the lighting and maintaining of the fires.

We are nearing the end of the negotiations between our insurers, loss adjusters, building contractors, listed building planners and structural engineers on the precise specification of the rebuild, which will see The Ship restored to its former glory. We believe that building works will start early next month.

As a listed building the thatch will be replaced, and the stoves will remain as the primary source of heating for the pub. However, we are investigating the latest advice, improvements and technology to help prevent future fires.
