[Archived] Yesterday I Went Down The Range

Recommended Posts

God spent six days creating the earth - he did this through a complex and evolutionary series of reactions and interrelationships that have developed and mutated over very many years.

On the seventh day he rested.

no flaming wonder, poor chap must of been well shagged...

I've changed it now - although decided not to take up your suggestion of Rev. Lovejoy. Thanks though.


The thing about buildings is that English Heritage (go find its web site) employ architectual historians to put the damp stamp of either Grade l; Grade ll* or Grade ll on a building. If you want to go to the big time stuff like Hadrian's Wall there is also "World Heritage Sites" which is also searchable.

For example - Blackpool Tower is Grade l and cannot be touched without the authorisation of The Secretary Of State For Culture Media & Sport who is inevitably advised by English Heritage. Grade ll* is similar if it's in the ownership of the Local Planning Authority in which case it's up to the SoS again. Commonly Town Halls and municipally owned buildings.

Grade ll* privately owned & Grade ll are left up to the Local Planning Authority to look after.

And they do look after them.

Chester City Council recently had Pizza Hut paint something like this


in an acid lime green colour, and they then took them to the cleaners. Told them to strip it off and get it back to where it should be. Too damn right.

Of course English Heritage is not a parochial organisation. It only lists buildings that are nationally worthy of retention and there are an awful lot which, although may look good, are not worthy of saving because there are just too many of them. And of course if the Local Planning Authority decides to demolish a Victorian school which has 30ft high ceilings, no insulation, rubbish lighting, and is completely unsuitable for teaching then away with it. It's a bit of a competition between conservationists & people who want their children to be taught in a decent environment.
