Petitioning The National Trust

Stop plans to open Stoneywell Cottage in Ulverscroft to the public!

Save Ulverscroft
From:-
• A huge escalation in traffic
• The loss of part of a field to a Car Park
• Lots more people
• Lots more noise
• Lots more signs
The residents of Ulverscroft are here for a reason – we like the nice unspoilt countryside of Charnwood Forest that surrounds us.
The National Trust intends to buy Stoneywell Cottage and open it to the Public. In peak season this is expected to draw 100+ visitors to the house per day! Part of the field they own on the corner of Whitcrofts Lane and Priory Lane they intend to convert into a Car Park from where they will shuttle people to/from the house with minibuses.
This doesn’t just affect Ulverscroft – traffic flows will increase significantly in surrounding areas, particularly Newtown Linford as traffic transits through from Leicester.
More detailed plans can be found on the National Trust correspondence page
