Save yourself

Ageing concrete lover Owen Luder is getting himself into a bit of a lather about the imminent demolition of his Derwent tower in Gateshead. Luder has issued a rallying call, urging the world to stand up to Gateshead Council to halt this mindless ‘mob mentality’. Unfortunately for Mr Luder not everyone will be rushing to his aid – in particular those with long memories at SAVE Britain’s Heritage. Back in 1984, the organisation tells Astragal, Luder did not see the point of SAVE and was happy to say it. He ranted: ‘SAVE Britain’s Heritage, like an old miser, wants to save almost anything that happens to be around.’
