Kent's Cavern up for sale

"Kents Cavern, described as ‘the most important prehistoric cave complex in Britain’, is up for sale for £2.5m

It is billed by the estate agent as “Britain’s oldest home” and includes a network of caves featuring stalagmites and stalactites, a collection of full-size (replica) ice age animals, and an acre of woodland trails.

Kents Cavern in Devon, which has been open to the public since the 19th century and in the ownership of the same family for 100 years, is up for sale for a very modern-sounding £2m to £2.5m."

Let's hope whoever buys it has more of a community spirit and social conscience... I do hate places of educational benefit that charge exorbitant admission - how can ordinary parents afford to take a family to see something like this? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
