There is a piece on Blake’s cottage by Richard Brooks in this week’s Private Eye (section “Nooks and Corners”). It mentions the Blake Cottage Trust’s failure to bring to fruition any plan for the building in over six years, and the anger this has stirred in many of us who do care for it.
The national press has yet to do a full coverage of everything that is so wrong with the Blake Cottage Trust and its handling of William Blake’s legacy, but this article is another step in the right direction. People need to know what is going on, and I do hope that other journalists follow Mr. Brooks’ example and dare to challenge the seemingly untouchable Blake Cottage Trust.
Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for the BCT to answer the questions I asked them in my last blog.
