DANGER!  DANGER!  RED ALERT! OUR HERITAGE IS UNDER ATTACK! Ellys Manor House

DANGER! DANGER! RED ALERT!  Our Heritage is under attack!

Due to ignorance and flawed planning laws in the United Kingdom, our historic environment is being compromised, if not destroyed. Millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money are being squandered, which leads to false historical narratives.


Children do not ask to come into this world. However, when we bring them up, we have a duty of care, if we wish to create a more socially cohesive society. It must not be left solely to teachers. We must all take part.
