National Trust Handbook 2007

These normally go into the recycling bin, but in fact the National Trust tends to gain properties rather than lose them, and they don't often make drastic changes to their opening times, so I think there is life in it for a while yet. The lists of coastline and coutryside car parks will still be of use as they stand, and there are telephone numbers for all the properties so it's fairly straightforward to check what, if anything, will be different this season (or next, or the one after ...).
The information is concise and clear. It gives wonderfully precise - and, in our experience, correct - details about access arrangements and suitability of its properties for visitors of various ages, abilities and species (terrestial & domestic only for now, but mayhap things will change as time goes on).
If having looked through this, or/and made use of it, you are tempted to support the National Trust I would strongly recommend it: it's too easy to think about all the grand houses the NT preserves and forget about the work it does in the countryside. Oh, and it's good value for money if you get out and about around the country - to things other than BC meet ups that is!
Picked up from the book buffet, and passed on to Lytteltonwitch, who´ll be visiting some of these places.
Sorry it has taken so long to log this book but have had limited internet access and also having trouble keeping track of things.
