It was on Countryfile this week. As the chap selling it said: what's it matter who owns it? We've all still got the right to climb all over it.

If it is important who owns it, then maybe crowdsource the money?

That's a nice idea. Bit of a big fundraising effort, though.

Good on the chap selling it, not the usual aristo/money story.

I hear the locals are clubbing together to buy it, to stop a Russian oligarch from doing so.

Good luck to them. How wide are they casting "local"?

No idea, was just chatter on 6music as I drove home.

Not sure how much it matters, as you can walk on it, whoever owns it.

To be honest, mountains are last week.

Villages. On the other hand...

Sold, not to the locals.

I wonder why this got such high community backing and Flixton Island has had virtually none at a quarter of the price. It's much more useful than a mountain.

Maybe just a better organised community.

Or perhaps mountains are more evocative than flat marshy bits of ground.

Yorkshire folk talk the talk, but won't come up with the cash, whilst Cumbrians just get on and get the job done?

You might think that, I couldn't possibly comment.
