Mu­seum sac­ri­ficed for tech­nol­ogy

Coventry Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

ONCE again, Coven­try City Coun­cil has shown that it cares lit­tle for her­itage.

The Elec­tric Mu­seum at Bag­in­ton, which has put to­gether a spe­cial col­lec­tion of elec­tric trains, has been forced out by the coun­cil which seems to con­sider tech­nol­ogy as more im­por­tant.

This col­lec­tion will now be scat­tered at other lo­ca­tions and will be a great loss, es­pe­cially when the coun­cil is mak­ing a song and dance about ap­ply­ing to be­come UK City of Cul­ture.

What is next on the coun­cil’s list for ex­ile? Michael Smith Wyken
