DH Lawrence visitor centre closure threat
The modest DH Lawrence visitor centre in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, is under threat after the local council say it will have to close. The centre is not just concerned with the writer's work, but also the mining industry which influenced it, making this centre a vital resource of working-class heritage. Leading writers, including Salman Rushdie and Martin Amis as well as Ken Russel and David Puttnam have all joined the campaign. The Guardian reported the story yesterday.
