Say bye-bye to the Cutty Sark

It's on fire and it will soon be no more than cinders.

London's Cutty Sark On Fire

Updated: 05:38, Monday May 21, 2007
The preserved 19th-century ship the Cutty Sark is on fire, London Fire Brigade has confirmed.

It is said to be 100% alight and eight fire engines are at the scene in Greenwich, south-east London.

Greenwich town centre is closed to traffic and the Docklands Light Railway will also close because of a police cordon, Scotland Yard said.
The ship, one of the capital's best-loved tourist attractions, is currently closed to the public for extensive renovation work. It was due to reopen in 2009.
There are fears that gas cylinders that may be on board the ship because of the renovation work may explode.
London Fire Brigade said the Metropolitan Police received a call at 04:55am reporting an extensive fire on the 19th-century clipper.

Wow!

Although I have to admit I thought you mean the brand of Scotch whiskey was going away.

It's sad though. It was very historic.

Re: Say bye-bye to the Cutty Sark

I was there last week. It was under a tarpaulin cover as it was being repaired.

Oh well.

Re: Say bye-bye to the Cutty Sark

When i went to the U.K in 2003 i went there-it was beautiful but i hear that the damage is not as bad as first thought-apparently half the ship was in storage-but i think it will be back but the cost will be very high-but it may be worth it

I was unaware it was anything else OTHER than a brand of scotch!

Anyway, yucky brand, J&B and Johnny Walker Black are better, imo.

All I really thought was how the green and yellow combination on the bottle is a little nauseating, and there are loads of better scotch brands out there!
