Ashby st Ledgers, seat of the ‘gunpowder plot’ of 1605.

I cycled through there yesterday on the way to Daventry.

This is the manor house where the plot took shape.

It was gifted by William the Conqueror around the dates of the Norman conquest to one of his subjects, Hugh de Grandmesnil.

It’s a manor house in a classical style.

The gunpowder plot was planned in the building you see straight ahead, the gatehouse, set back in privacy from the main house.

When the plot was uncovered, as the seat of a criminal event, it passed to the ownership of the crown and since has had various owners, including the pension fund of British Airways!

Crop sprayer

The rest of the village is picture postcard style, apart from this crop sprayer I noticed after inhaling noxious chemicals being blown through the hedge.

No wonder we have no wildlife in this country.

Mass extinction event

As you can see this guy is coating a grass field with chemicals, sanctioned by the UK’s largest landowner, Co-Op farms who own the fields and the land around Ashby st Ledgers.

The death and destruction of the UK bird and animal population, (insects in particular), is a crisis.

It’s a crisis that’s not being dealt with, or acknowledged.

I shared a facebook post on this the other day.

The broken capitalist system is sending the planet into an irreversible death spiral in the need for our constant insistence on ‘growth’.

The death is spreading.

In times to come…

Maybe a shared vision of the future like that that inspired the gunpowder plotters to do what they did isn’t there anymore. The unstoppable machine of capitalism will gobble all the resources and turn the planet to desert.

We’re cathartically drifting toward that future.

I suppose with the benevolent dictator model, there was always a chance we we’re going to aspire to a greater goal than the acquisition of more money and wordly goods.

I think that time has passed.

  1. A beautiful house. Let’s hope people are similarly inspired today to challenge the evil of the money God and save the planet….we’ll see.
