The article discusses the dwelling of litterateur Virginia Woolf. The long battle to save Asham House, country home to Woolf, was demolished on July 12, 1994. The house was demolished to provide space for landfill. Journalists who had asked to be present at the demolition were not informed. A visitor reported that you would not be able to tell that a house had ever been there at all. But something yet survives as parts of the house will be used for historical renovation. Also, a substantial endowment promises a continuance of Virginia Woolf's influence.
