Pillar To Post : The Tabernacle Will Return!

The regeneration of Swindon town centre continues to culminate with the Baptist Tabernacle frontage and portico due to return to the town by June or July.

It's expected a contract to formally purchase the stones which have been sat in a Northamptonshire field for years will be signed very soon. The stones will then be transported back, possibly to the Science Museum at Wroughton.

Once in secure storage, the process of assembley will be the next step. It's been agreed with devlopers of the Granville Street carpark site that the stones and frontage will form the entrance to either a museum of art gallery.

The Granville Street development is due to be open by 2010.

Swindon Centric Says : If the stones are fitted together like an Ikea flat pack set then hopefully someone will remember to bring an Allen key and some of those wooden dowel things.
