Village for Sale

If ever there was a news story that is geography related this is it. A whole village in North Wessex Downs called Linkenholt is for sale for 22.5 million pounds by the Herbert and Peter Blagrave Charitable Trust. According to the Times online property section, the new owner will get a 2,000-acre estate, two blacksmiths, a shop, a cricket club, a three-story manor house,a commercial shoot, farming land, an educational activity center for children and 22 houses. However, the residents of the village don’t want the new owners to change how anything is currently done. I’m not sure what you get for your money, but a breath taking and historic piece of geography.
