Recommended Posts

Just watched it online, crying shame, I just hate old buildings and/or artefacts like this getting destroyed.

Its very sad to see this happening, and restoring it will be abn awfully long job and will take many years.  Just a small part of York Minister took four years to restore - this will be a far bigger job and might take until the 2040s.

Just seen it on the news, apparently restoration  work was in progress. 

 

It's a fierce fire totally out of control.  

Yes let's hope everyone is safe.

There's going to be an awful lot more restoration work after this. It seems according to some reports that the restoration work might be responsible for this.

At least if restoration work was going on it wouldnt have been open to the public? which is a very good thing

It seems that today's date, 15th April is a momentous one in history

 

  • Titanic sinks
  • The millions starving in China
  • Jallianwala Bagh massacre
  • Hillsborough disaster
  • And now Notre Dame up in flames

It's lucky it didn't happen tomorrow, on the 16th April, then it would competing for diary space with the

Battle of Culloden

Sinking of the Goya

Cuba turning Communist

Virginia Tech shooting

Iran earthquake

 

and of course the discovery of LSD.

 

 

It's very sad.
