Not content with having to put up with what must be the most out-of-keeping bridge in England, now the very heart of Lesbury is threatened with destruction.
Right opposite the church, a row of stone cottages including the Post Office are due for demolition and redevelopment.
Why are these historical buildings not listed?
There is a paper petition against this plan but I appeal for one to be set up online.
While I do not have internet access at the moment this would enable all who love traditional Northumbrian villages to protest.
Please help before it is too late.
