So long sweet friend...

The AJ is preparing to shed a tear. Two of this magazine’s oldest pals have let it slip that they have finally tired of drinking from Astragal’s salacious cup.

In fact both are mere youngsters –they just seem to have been around for years. The tweed-before–his-age, bane of the development world Adam Wilkinson from SAVE Britain's Heritage has announced his forthcoming departure – as has spritely political whizz-kid Stephen Harding at the RIBA.

Wilkinson is taking his brave battle against the modern world north of the border, where he will soon be parachuted into the bloody, conservationist trenches as the new director of Edinburgh World Heritage.
