Chastleton village say no to the National Trust

We the village of Chastleton in West Oxfordshire and friends of the village strongly condemn the National Trust for breaking it's word on limiting visitor numbers, by-passing the planning system,and failing to take in to account the impact on the village of opening Chastleton Houseon Sunday . We the undersigned, stand by the village and understand that the impact of 30,000 visitors on a small village of 80 or so homes and farms is causing environmental damage, including traffic nuisance, destruction ofverges, invasion of privacy, pollution and litter. We also object tothe National Trust's refusal to negotiate on any limits on visitor numbers, hours of opening and activities. This is Localism not nimbyism



  • Clive Cutler I am appalled at the approach taken by The National Trust. Their profit requirements can be met by more acceptable means.

  • Dr Aarani Blaney I am extremely disappointed in the National Trust, in spite of having been a member for twenty years. Their unsympathetic commercialism concerns me. I expect better from such a national organisation.
