The National Trust dictates, to a large extent, what will become a national treasure and therefore, nurtured and cared for. That’s good because at least someone is preserving some heritage, like Scotney Castle, and I like that but… I am still sulking from visiting the Isle of Wight and discovering they have made The Needles a paid entry venue… It is an outcrop… A range of rocks sticking out of the water… How can they lay claim to that? Furthermore, I have been told, though not yet been there myself, that they have entrance rights to Lands End in Cornwall. What is at Land’s End that needs huge financial investment for upkeep? I’m not so sure I feel open spaces shouldn’t be free access to all.
