Cutty Sark

Recommended Posts

Have you heard the news today about the Cutty Sark? Burned down in the early hours of this morning, arson suspected :cry: Fortunately it's been undergoing extensive restoration work recently and a large part of it had been removed for renovation, so they believe that they should be able to restore it, but what a pointless bit of vandalism (if that's what it was) to a great piece of British history. I work in the Greenwich area and have visited the Cutty Sark in the past, and am quite bizarrely upset by this news.

Some of the story is on the Timesonline : http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article1817806.ece

I have many happy memories with Matthew who is now 18 running up and down the Cutty sark when he was 18 months to 2 years.."all aboard" he would shout down to us ...it was a brilliant way of using up all his energy on a Sunday morning. Hope they restore it :cry:
