East Coker in the news again

The Sunday Times has as one of its rather hysterical- but still distressing- front page headlines today (14 August 2011):

"T S Eliot's East Coker to be concrete Waste Land"

The main article (p. 5) reports that East Coker could be "swamped by an eco-town".

The Guardian wrote about the same issue on 20 March 2011

Second part

Some books which are still available:

East Coker

T.S. Eliot reads his Four Quartets: Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages & Little Gidding

Will the residents of the village, and their supporters, manage to persuade the government to apply for a UNESCO World Heritage listing for East Coker?
