"...just about the most enviable commercial spot in the whole village."
Well, whatever doesn't get sold there will be sold by NT down the road so its good news for them.
I was going to suggest you and me and Moss take a lease on a shop and sell stuff (me - newly knapped arrowheads) but since the big cheese owns most of the village I doubt if we'd be allowed. We can't even flog stuff from the back of a car as its against the byelaws...
There's a fortune to be made though - copper dowsing rods in the Henge Shop at £7 - I can get them in the Black Country for 20p.
