London (ANI): The National Trust has said that it may launch a
campaign to buy the Abbey Road Studios on behalf of the nation
after EMI reportedly put the building up for sale. The charity said
in a statement that "if there is enough momentum, we may launch a
campaign to save the studios".
It said members of the public had got in touch to back the idea
after it was discussed on Chris Evans'' BBC Radio 2 show, and on
BBC Radio 5 live. People have also been discussing whether the
National Trust could save the world-famous studios on Facebook and
“It's not often that the public spontaneously suggests that we
should acquire a famous building," the Telegraph quoted a spokesman
for the National Trust as saying. “However, Abbey Road recording
studios appear to be very dear to the nation's heart - to the
extent that we will take soundings as to whether a campaign is
desirable or even feasible," he added.
