Living as I do in a leafy village where every field has a horse in it I am particularly concerned by this news. Succesive Governments have demonstrated little understanding of the countryside and its ways. It would be sad if our wonderfully succesful Wine industry was adverseley affaected by these proposals - I am partial to the odd glass of wine too - and I love walking in the countryside. This area is very well supplied by properties which are all on the Government's hit list! Or am I just being paranoid?
