As readers of the Post will know, in our view there is a huge synergy between neglected books and neglected buildings. This is why we reprinted The Sack of Bath and this is why buildings appear so often on the Post.

First a Grade II Iisted house in Buckinghamshire which dates from the 17th century and is in 'a sadly dilapidated condition'. What a rescue project this would be! The house is £275,000 which is not too bad but of course the main cost would be restoring it to a livable condition. Details from the estate agent here.
