My "specialised" subject is second hand smoke and I have researched it (and tobacco from seed to smoke) for the last four years. I happen to know that the editors of the SHS section on Wiki are are rabid anti-smokers and they have left out a ton of information that would have provided balance. So I dont trust anything that they have in there. I always cross-reference whatever they say.
Anyhoo, I don't believe that all land belongs to the Lords. I spent a couple of hours today looking at unclaimed land here in Scotland and there is plenty of it about. Some of it, no doubt, that once DID belong to a Lord who might have died intestate. I was surprised at the amount of land that is simply abandoned, or was never owned in the first place.
There are millions of acres there for the taking, and it needn't cost a penny.
I thought it was a natural fit for the Freeman Movement. Now that I am a Freeman I will need some space to build a house and live life the way I want to. The Home Office did not deny any of my Claims of Right so I don't need to ask for planning permission. My mission is to harness natural energy (wind and solar) and drill my own water well. The goal being to become self-sufficient. I need the extra land for growing food for my family.
Oh, and if you're a townie, there are thousands of buildings that have been abandoned too. Claim one of 'em!
Just google "unclaimed land (or buildings) in England" or Wales or wherever you want to be. Several sites pop up. Some want a fee but I am sure that with a bit of research you can cope yourselves. How hard can it be?
http://www.thecrownestate.co.uk/print/tce_faqs.htmDoes The Crown Estate take ownership of ‘unclaimed land’?
Freehold land can sometimes effectively become ownerless. When this happens title to the land may, in certain circumstances, revert to the Crown as the ultimate owner of all the land in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. This process is called ‘escheat’. It can happen in a variety of situations.
The Crown Estate deals with escheat where the land falls within England, Wales or Northern Ireland and outside Cornwall and the County Palatine of Lancaster – where escheat is dealt with by the Duchy of Cornwall and the Duchy of Lancaster respectively. Contact details for the Duchies are set out set above.
Every Inch of British Land is owned by a 'Lord'
