Owners Try To Save British Pub Where Pink Floyd Was Formed

The owners of a British pub where Pink Floyd got its start are hoping to save it from demolition.


The Cambridge pub, now called the Flying Pig, was where future Floyd bandmates Syd Barrett and David Gilmour first met in the late 1950’s. But now developers want to tear it down.


The managers have filed an appeal hoping to ‘protect and preserve’ the Flying Pig. A final decision will be made sometime next year.
