I loved the national trust until I did the limited things in N Ireland, would definitely join in England,
Seen someone fell from the Whisperers gallery in St Paul's, that's always been my fear, heights, I remember climbing above a bell tower in Budapest above a Cathedral I think, no staff, just black floor leading to a balcony waaaayyy above the ground, but the Vatican puts all manor houses and everywhere else to shame though the hidden Catholic Church in Amsterdam is amazing, still fear the heights, shame, I actually don't mind it (Vatican) but it's the richest company in the world, the last corridor out is a mile long and just painting after invaluable painting.
There's lots of manor houses from imperialism in the South of Ireland Sid, I wouldn't tear them down because they make a profit and there's no shortage of space, England may be very different though.
Still, I remember visiting York, be a fuckin travesty if they levelled a lot of it, even Leeds has some lovely places.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.
