Bartered Bride

  • Comment

The latest chapter in the saga of the Bride of Denmark, the old Architectural Press private pub assembled by Osbert Lancaster, John Betjeman et al, concerns a new bid to find a home for the bar and other listed fixtures and fittings (lion's head, engraved mirrors). Westminster Council is set to give permission for conversion of the cellar space in Queen Anne's Gate back to domestic use - provided a home is found for the Bride's essential elements. English Heritage is also involved with the quest for a new home. Readers may remember that aj and ar combined with the riba to create just such a home, but it proved impossible to make space available at the institute. Anyone with ideas for the move is welcome to contact Astragal, in writing. Letters will be forwarded where appropriate.
