What you have to realise is that the National Trust are not as much loved in all circles that people in their rosy spectacled lets all hug a rabbit world would like to think.

Quote: There are a large number of Lakeland car parks which are little more than clearings amongst the trees which the NT 'took on' some years ago - previously they were free.
Now that's OK until you visit 5 in day at a fiver a pop.
I'm sure they have an OAP discount rate for you Keith

OK leave it to us and don't visit or pay parking charges...............there must be "scrub land" somewhere you can park for nowt
Quote: you can stay at home and moan about how the world owes you a living..........
Well said! The suggestion has been made to join NT in which case car parking is free - but they would sooner mooooooooaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnn.
A decent car costs about £2-3K a year to run but they complain about a fiver........ Beats the sh1t outa me!
Most things do but I have never stated that the world owes me a living, in fact the thread has never been anywhere near it.
However, don't expect a professional photographer to talk with reverance about the NT. Especially if you have ever dealt with the money grabbing free loading 'oh but we are a charidy' shysters.
Keith I would be interested in an example of why you are anti NT. It's none of my business of course, but as a long standing member and visitor of many of the NT properties and having spoken to hundreds of the staff (most volunteers) it is a viewpoint I am not getting.
I don't mind if you ignore this or tell me to keep my nose out.............but I am genuinely interested in your viewpoint
Quote: lets all hug a rabbit
Didn't you get arrested for that ?
It had gone beyond the hugging.
Not going into the my mistrust of the NT photo library.
Keith.........just looked at your portfolio and I guess I am now seeing your viewpoint, not an area I would ever have problems as I am just a happy snapper. Certainly did not mean to pry.
There are +/- points with NT.
The general visitor and conservation is ok.
On the commerce side they are not so eager to pay promptly for contract services where the best part of a year is expected unless they have changed their T&C
Did any of you actually notice it is a free entry voucher - if you want to go go, if not, why the hell argue about carparks?
Because its a Forum.
