WORKERS have been seen at a town hotel which is now under new ownership.

Renovations to the outside of Chequers Hotel in Dalton were being carried out.

The hotel found a new owner when it was sold earlier this year.

Based in Abbey Road, it was put on the market last year when it suddenly closed after the company behind the venue fell into financial difficulties.

The 27-bedroom hotel was listed on the market for £700,000, a reduced price from its original price of £1m.

Chequers Bar and Hotel went into liquidation in September.
