Britain destroying heritage!!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/6675381.stm

Heartbreaking news on a bad fire on the Cutty Sark as she was being restored. Hopefully it isn't as bad as it looks and the restoration will still go ahead.

Unfortunately it is yet another example of how Britain has no respect whatsover for it's heritage.

Here is another example

Another tea clipper just left to rot.

In fairness the Yanks are to be admired for the way they look after such things. As LimeyDal's photos prove the Yanks at least respect such things - it seems the only way Britain's heritage is safe is if it's shipped to the USA!!!

There are plenty of old buildings that are destroyed to make way for new developments of hideous properties that all look the same. If a building is listed then they just let it get in a hell of a state so it has to be demolished for "safety" reasons!!!
