The Victorian shelter by the King’s Hall has been burnt down by a scumbag or scumbags unknown.
At the moment, it is unclear whether it was (a) charmless drunken youths, or (b) a local resident wanting to deny the aforementioned youths a meeting place. The CCTV on the HB Sailing Club shows the fire starting at about 2:45am, and going strong by the time the fire brigade arrived.
The shelter was the winner in a Victorian design-a-beach-shelter competition, so with luck the original plans and designs will be available somewhere (Historical Records Society, perhaps?), should anyone feel like restoring/rebuilding it.
Should it be rebuilt? If so, where?
