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 Twitter.
“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.
