Has there been a proper agreement made re the collection between the council and the British Glass Foundation?

Edited to add: Hopefully answering my own question here...

The collection will be loaned to the British Glass Foundation on a 125-year lease and they will run the new museum.

Very sad as it was a beautiful showcase for the glass.

Can anyone tell me what happened to the site called Gorgeous Glass which I used to browse avidly to see the collection.  It seems to have disappeared - it was so easy to use.
