English Heritage chairman Neil Cossons has announced his determination to save Britain's industrial heritage in a speech delivered to an audience of international industrial archaeologists and architects last week. 'In 500 years time visitors will come to this country to see textile mills, iron foundries, coal mines, railways and other industrial buildings as they now flock to see the monuments of the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Rome, China and Peru, ' he said. 'However, with the pressure for development greater than ever before, our industrial heritage is increasingly vulnerable. We must save the best of it while we can.'
