The Pasmore Pavilion at Sunny Blunts, Peterlee, County Durham, has suffered constant threats of demolition, but after years of neglect Pasmore's masterpiece is still - for the moment - standing. Admirers of Victor Pasmore's work are acutely aware of the importance of securing the long-term future of the pavilion, which represents a unique integration of art with architecture and forms a fitting tribute to the memory of this great twentieth century British artist and educator.
Neglected and vandalised as it has been, there is still time for it to be rescued and preserved.Various suggestions have been put forward, ranging from landscaping to the construction of a roof garden and the addition of a water feature designed to enhance its lake-side location - did someone mention Charlie Dimmock!
If you are concerned about the pavilion's future or have any suggestions for it, please make your views known to Gerard Darby, valuation and estates officer, District of Easington Council Offices, Seaside Lane, Easington, Peterlee, County Durham SR8 3TN, tel 0191 5270501, fax 0191 5273797.
