Hugh Lowther, who refers to himself as the Earl of Lonsdale when he wants to feel posh, is selling a 2,850-foot mountain in the Lake District for £1.75m. The money will be used to pay a tax bill, allowing the earl to avoid selling off any parts of the estate with tenanted properties.
As well as a mountain and 2,676 acres of ground, the land comes with a title -- buyers may call themselves Lord of the Manor of Threlkeld once the estate agent's completed the deal -- and grazing rights for 5,471 ewes, which might be handy come the apocalypse. [BBC]
