If the Clarkson's feel like this about their home why have they opened the cottages listed below.

While I agree everyone deserves their privacy perhaps Jeremy should not have made it known where he has a second home, or am I just being nasty?? I really enoy his Top Gear Program and don't have any unkind feelings about him.

There is a little more about this on the links at this site.

My comment here is that people who buy Lighthouses, or any other type of historically-relevant property, should expect that this type of activity goes with the territory, so to speak....

To me, it defies logic that these people who buy these places would expect that they will have total privacy and no trespassers just by sticking up a few signs -- Ain't Gonna Happen.....

You have voiced perfectly what I was trying to say, CHUCKX53. By letting people know who lives there Clarkson was asking for more than just pharologists to wander over his land.

"There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."

They want privacy and go live on a public attracting site. Popularity and brains are not always going together 8)
