Deeply disappointed

We are deeply disappointed to learn today that the National Trust has advertised for tenders to run grouse shooting on the Hope Woodlands and Park Hall estates in the Derbyshire Peak District.

The news was broken on Mark Avery's highly-respected blog shortly after we announced that our petition of nearly 6,000 signatures was being  rescheduled and is to be handed over to the National Trust at Kedleston Hall near Derby tomorrow, August 1st at 11:45am.

Mark published a summary of the tender, though the full details and maps can be found here. Mark suggested three possible scenarios that the Trust is working to. Read his post and you decide for yourself.

Meanwhile, we feel that the wrong advert was published on Mark's blog. Here's a possibly better version.
