“I’m afraid conservation areas are suffering a plague of plastic windows,” the chief executive of English Heritage was quoted in today’s Telegraph.co.uk.
Plastic windows face wrath of conservationists
“I would never in a million years put one in,” he continued.
The conservationist body described uPVC windows and doors as the most serious of all threats to beautiful places of “special architectural or historical interest.”
The Blog was amused to notice at the foot of the article in the UK’s leading conservative newspaper a series of adverts for uPVC windows – “Double Glazing Sale,” “Beautiful Conservatories,” and “Half Price Windows Offer,” because although the Telegraph’s readers may resent all change to the fabric of the nation, they do like to extend and renovate their own homes.
