Concerns over Nottingham's heritage

The BBC Nottingham website reports that Ian Wheeler of the Nottingham Civic Society is worried about threats to Nottingham's heritage on the day that the Lace Centre near the castle closed for good. The Lace Centre was based in the medieval Severns building that was moved from its original position on Middle Gate in the late 1960s when the Broadmarsh centre was being built. It is now empty and the City Council have no immediate plans for it.

Ian said "It is very worrying. There have been other threats, the Industrial Museum is another worrying one."
