Campaigners have previously gathered in front of the site, which now shows little evidence that the pub – which dates back to 1830 when it was converted from a farmhouse – ever existed, apart from the containers with bricks from the building in.

But anyone trying to access the site today would have had problems as an exclusive Express & Star video shows two trees have fallen over the path, restricting access.

The Express & Star has contacted South Staffordshire Council about the trees blocking the access road.
