One of Britain's finest Art Deco hotels has been sold for less than £850,000. Morecambe's Midland Hotel, designed by Oliver Hill in 1933, includes features by Eric Gill and Eric Ravilious. It has been closed since November but a restoration is said to be imminent.

A Channel 4 poll ranked it the 19th favourite 20th-century British building in 1999.
