A Scheduled Monument

11 Feb

Catching up with other news from this charming little town and you’ll be delighted to learn that, after an exercise in public consultation hitherto unknown in these parts, the local hole has been saved for future generations and is to be extended with seating and a few hedges and so on. This represents a reversal for the Council which wanted to fill it in but had not reckoned without the power of digital petitions and news articles describing that decision as idiotic. (Quite why that particular decision any more idiotic than all the rest is a mystery). So now the litter will have more space to gather in and the youths will have more space to hang around and be disaffected. But history has been saved …
The few medieval bricks, tucked away in the corner down there, that make up what was once Beverley Gate have now been made a Scheduled Monument by the Department for Culture, Media & Sport (I assume it costs the Government nothing to do this) which means that…., well I don’t know what it means, but it sounds good doesn’t it.
I’ve also heard that regarding the dreadful Word Gate proposed for nearby the Council are looking for other sites. They didn’t respond to my suggestion that two miles east of Spurn Point was an excellent site.

    Scheduled Monument. Sounds like something a Marketing Chimp would come up with.

    Youth need a place to go and be disaffected. Why not learn a respect for history at the same time?
