Is no-one going to have it restored? I hope they wake up before it's really beyond repair...

Wow, that would be tragic to lose such a beautiful and historic location - I hope it can be protected somehow!

It's a tragedy when something of historic importance is allowed to fall into ruin. I hope it is saved before it's too late.

(Thanks for the hug! Here's one for you, too!)
