Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is a government project!. The National Parks are a sort of arms length management body set up under Natural England (What used to be the Countryside Agency)which is answerable to Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) (which used to be the old MAFF (Ministry for Agriculture Fisheries and Food).

    You, the taxpayer, own it!
  2. er it its a goverment project same as the national park in the lakes.
    land hasn't changed ownership just restricts development.
    imho a good thing
  3. Not quite. The National Parks were presented as a 'gift' to ex servicemen after world war 2. The South Downs one got sidelined for 60 years because of bickering over the boundaries.
  4. April Fool perhaps?
