Oh I hope they will do a good job- making it look like it's old self... but better!
Lisl: I guess it may be more convenient - I just hope some of the old parts were salvaged
Such a shame, I read about this. Even the Seagulls look sad.
Lisl: They and their forbears have been watching this since it was being built, Frank - no wonder!

Oh Dear!

No matter...there are plenty of other pubs in Olde Englande.
Lisl: And lots claiming to be the oldest, Ray
OH, NO, Lisl! The oldest hotel in England? That makes the loss even more monumental. Do they know how the fire started, I wonder?

Lisl: This is the Fire Service response: "Investigations are on-going but investigators have not been able to examine the scene. The severity of the fire has also limited the extent of the investigation but fire officers will continue to work with other agencies, such as the police and the Health & Safety Executive, and assist insurance companies as appropriate.

I wonder how much can be saved?
Lisl: Not a lot, by the sound of it, Chris

What a pity! I( hope it can recover. I like the sea- gull on the head of the illustrious man who looks like Luther.
Lisl: This is a statue of Richard Hooker (1554-1600), an influential theologian, in front of Exeter Cathedral, Philine
When this happened I nearly cried. I have passed this hotel so many times in my childhood and the Cathedral square is diminished without it. There has been talk of re-creating it and I suppose they may be able to , at least, reuse some of the original facade
Lisl: I understand how you must feel particularly sad about this, Bill
I presume they are going to rebuild it as it was Lisl, but this time it will benefit from modern safety features.
Lisl: Yes - some good will come of it, Chad

la mouette ne s'intéresse pas du tout aux travaux

Lisl: More intent on finding food, I think!

This was a tragedy unsurpassed since the Blitz. I do hope that a new building embodying what is salvageable from the original will arise on the site.
Lisl: The wish of many who loved the place, and those who didn't even know it, Hugh
it looks like a big operation Lisl... i'm sure that they will bring it back to life
... except the building material will be modern....petersmile
Lisl: It may be more comfortable, Peter
It's awful when such old and historic buildings are destroyed in this way.
Lisl: A tragedy, Brian

A great photo of the aftermath of a tragic event.
Lisl: Thank you, Cherie
oula!! il y a du travail de remise en état!! amitiés
Lisl: Such a huge rebuilding task ahead
Let's hope the building fully recovers from the tragic occurrence.
Lisl: I am sure it will be very well done, but not the same........
Quel travail de restauration ..
Lisl: A mammoth task
