Positive news as National Trust appear to be listening after their disastrous decision to close George Stephenson's cottage in wylam

The National Trust is a great institution that has lost its way recently. And nowhere is this best demonstrated by the unilateral closure of george Stephenson cottage in wylam. The arguments about how they failed to support or even sign post the venue are many but almost worse has been the failure  to accept there is a problem in their approach. Still I hope that we are getting there and I am encouraged by positive noises coming out of the Trust, as reported in the journal.
