  1. Lots of larches are immune to this infection, and if they remain in place we'll still have larches in twenty years. If the Forestry Commission's plans go ahead then all the larches from here to Scotland will end up being felled. The people who work for Sheffield Council's forestry department are tearing their hair out about this, from what I hear. Their feeling is that it would be better to only remove trees which are showing an adverse reaction to the infection, and to allow others to remain in the hope that they'll be resistant. But the SPHN which has been served doesn't allow for that. It makes compulsory the felling of all larches within a certain distance of infected ones. My feeling is that the forestry department's staff are better informed, or have a better plan for the future of trees, than the Forestry Commission. Sad.
  2. I wonder if the map on the sales website shows where the post code is, not where the house is. With rural houses like that post codes are often a bit of a way from the house when you put them into Google Maps. I asked why the name has changed and was told it was always Stanedge Lodge on the deeds of the house, not Stanage. You must have spent a fortune on the place when you lived there to get it all done up from having holes in the roof like you say. What a lot of hard work and cash to expend only to have it all reposessed because of some chancer. That must have been awful. But I bet your sons had the best time growing up there. I'd love to have lived somewhere like that when I was a kid.
  3. I know this is an old thread, but I've been looking at this house as it's for sale now. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/108302459 Seems like it's called Stanedge Lodge, not Stannedge Lodge. I think the pole is Stanage Pole, and the edge is Stanage Edge, so why the difference in spelling? I don't know. But it looks like an amazing place. Wish I could afford it!
