BEN Gibbs continues to ridicule me and my friends for opposing the National Trust's so-called 'Wicken Vision,' and he makes two points, one being that we have less 'wild fen' surrounding us than we had four hundred years ago. According to estimates that I have seen, there were about five million people in Great Britain in 1600 and there are supposed to be some 60 millions today. So we need less food-growing farm land now? Come off it, Mr Gibbs: how much more ridiculous are you going to get?
He also heads his latest letter to you, 'Vision Would Save Land' and suggests that the so-called 'Wicken Vision' will save the Fen area from housing and industrial development. Mr Gibbs really exhibits his ignorance here, for if there is one type of land that is pretty well impossible to 'develop' in the way that he worries about, it is the peat-rich but unstable Fen land. Ever heard of piles, Ben?
