Houses to be built at Clifton –surely not!!

I was contacted recently by Mr Frederick Cameron Wilson regarding a proposal to build 40 houses close to the “rebel” tree, battle site and grave site in the village of Clifton. Planning permission has not yet been sought but a public meeting has been held in the village.

Mr Cameron Wilson is a free lance photographer and hold many of the aims and sentiments of the 1745 Association to heart. He was present for part of the time at the Association’ s Gathering in Penrith some years ago.

Dr Christopher Duffy has informed the Battlefield’s Trust who are interested in the matter of course and are taking it seriously.

Any of you who live in the area might like to keep an eye on the press etc for developments
