Dunno...
It must be a sad combo of evolution and culture.
Like suicide bombers and politicians.

Unused building proposed to be turned into brew-pub, campaigners shocked that it can't be used for what it used to be, an arts venue: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-27116893

Now, sorry, as much as I think that "yay arts venues" are good, thie building wasn't built originally as an arts venue, it's a Grade 1 listed wool warehouse. If they're campaigning for anything about restricting its use, it should be to keep it as a warehouse. smiley - shrug

I'm also very sceptical of statements like
" create up to 30 jobs in the next five years" yeah sure and it will also ` create up to 25 redundancies in the next five years` as well

It's a fine mediaeval building, and whatever they decide to do with it, the owners need to conserve it within reason. I have no worries about what it's used for. A brewery is as good as any other use, so long as they don't need industrial-sized alterations.
