Not sure that "the nation" or the National Trust wants to be lumbered with any expense that might come with owning it. Also, can it come to any harm whoever owns it?

Apparently the locals are talking of holding a raffle with the winner taking over the Lordship (or Ladyship) if the community buys it. I think I'll have a bit of that. I could post here as Lord Blencathra...

Why not Nigel! Julian Cope called himself Lord Yatesbury for many years (though I think it was a phase).

I bumped into a Rambler friend this morning and was reminded of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act which came into force in 2005. In effect it operated as a compulsory purchase order causing many landowners to lose out on income from grouse shooting.[...]access/openaccess/default.aspx
