The over-ambitious and out-of-tune so-called 'Wicken Vision' - the awful vuvuzela of Eastern England
I have just sent off the following:
There is a certain irony in Dame Fiona Reynolds praying in aid of her arguments on behalf of the National Trust the good works of the late Urban Hanlon Broughton, M.P.
Urban Broughton's grandson, Ailwyn Henry George Broughton, the present Lord Fairhaven, is evidently unhappy with the National Trust's present-day activities for he has signed petitions created by myself in defence of the Cambridgeshire Fens adjacent to his former home at Anglesey Abbey where the Trust wishes to buy up and flood or 'junglefy' thousands of acres of fine food-growing land, the best of Britain's most basic resources and close by the ancient Fen-edge settlements of Lode & Longmeadow, Wicken, Upware, Burwell, Reach, Swaffham Prior, Swaffham Bulbeck, Bottisham, Stow cum Quy, Fen Ditton, Horningsea and Waterbeach.
The Trust should re-think the over-ambitious and out-of-tune so-called 'Wicken Vision' - the awful vuvuzela of Eastern England - before it is too late.
