Aardman studio burns down

“Everything from Morph to Creature Comforts to Wallace and Gromit was there. It had all the film sets, the props, the models, everything. It really is a bit of tragedy.” Read on…

Considering other recent world calamities (which I don’t need to write about), this is rather minor, but I still felt a pang of sadness to hear that Aardman Animations, home of Wallace & Gromit, has burnt down. Strange about the timing – just when their latest movie made it to the box office number one. Jealousy, perhaps? Or blame it on the old Victorian structure.

I didn’t realise the studio was near Temple Meads, which was where I’d take the train to and from Bristol occasionally. What a shame indeed.
