Destroyed 17th century ceiling in Bristol prompts calls for new protections


HE should at least say what has actually happened. The ceiling hasn't 'been removed', it has been smashed up. 'Been removed' is weasel words designed to gloss over a failure to protect. It is possible to remove a ceiling - think of Croome Court (now NT) decades ago, where ceilings ended up in the US. This could have been removed, and maybe sold. But Anna Sullivan is right. Far better would have been to leave it in situ and watch admiring parents express delight and surprise at their student offspring's new accommodation - at an enhanced price, naturally.
