    Agree it should be in Coniston, also they should build a place at Pier Cottage where it can go in and out of the lake.its where the Gondola lives now but no reason why they cant live side by side,
    I spoke with the lady that owns Pier Cottage and i got the impression the National Trust is involved in it now, It is 12 years ago i offered her £1million because i loved the place and thought i can see myself telling everybody how to sail and camp while earning money   Angry2
