Anything but the Mechanics'

It seems the Mechanics' Trust has now crowned itself the voice of Swindon's historic buildings, following this recent Adver story about the Corn Exchange.

This follows onto the growing list of new projects and pies the trust seem to have their limited fingers into. This includes the Baker's Arms pub, the Central Community Centre, the old Railway Museum cottage and an allotment.

Meanwhile, the building they're meant to be dedicating their time to sits empty and derelict and they don't own it.

Is the trust diversifying itself for the day it's decreed they're not to be involved in the future of the Mechanics' Institute?
