Julia Stobie started this petition to Heritage Lottery Fund and

Please help me tell The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and The Society of Antiquaries (SAL) that decimating countryside must be reconsidered. 

Kelmscott Manor has been awarded significant funds from the HLF.  The money has strings attached - a doubling of the visitor numbers to 40,000 per year.  Our village comprises only 30 homes. 

Changes to accommodating these visitor numbers means totally trashing existing wildlife habitat and countryside in and around Kelmscott - let alone the village being overrun by visitors.  Kelmscott is not Disneyland! 

We appreciate the Manor needs money for maintenance but this can't be at the expense of this beautiful, tranquil village.  

The villagers made some simple suggestions to minimise the environmental impact of the changes to the owners of the Manor (SAL).  These suggestions included changing the car park entrance but both HLF and SAL are just ignoring the villagers. 

Please help us tell the HFL and SAL that the British environment needs protecting too!
