The British Engineerium RIP

Well, they say you don't know what you've got until it's gone and I was very sad to hear that The British Engineerium in Hove has closed and its contents are up for auction! I suppose I should have visited it more. It was a marvellous place with its huge beam engine and Lancashire boilers in steam, and all the other bits and pieces. Another piece of Brighton's industrial heritage bites the dust, to be demolished or converted into yet more yuppy apartments I suppose.
