[From the BBC:] Wentworth Woodhouse is For Sale

Since reviewing Catherine Bailey's Black Diamonds: The Downfall of an Aristocratic Dynasty and the Fifty Years that Changed England for The Good, the Bad and the Unread, I've been more determined than previously to visit Wentworth Woodhouse.

Now, apparently it's up for sale. BBC story here and Estate Agent's particulars here. Hopefully the tours will carry on until a buyer is found. And even more hopefully the new owners will continue the work that's been started and offer even more tours than are currently available.

Alternatively, there may still be a chance that the existing campaign by Save Britain's Heritage will raise the money they need to save the house themselves.
