According to the Salisbury Journal the project might  go ahead – but not till 2013. 

The newspaper says that on Thursday English Heritage project development manager Martin Harvey updated councillors and members of the public on progress made and quotes him as saying “If all goes well with the remainder of this year, we believe we can still start work on the site in 2012 and open for business the following year.”

That’s puzzling, to say the least! Is it true? Has the Olympic deadline been missed? And if so, isn’t that the big story? Are people expected to not notice?

Or is it felt that the world will end in 2012 so it’s all a bit academic?

Wouldn’t a proper announcement in the proper place now be appropriate?!
