Some of our club rides go into the Cotswolds, a lovely area to cycle in. We are often in and around Tetbury, famous for the domain of a certain well known land owner. We do encounter very large tractors on narrow lanes, sometimes driven at quite high speeds by youngsters whilst using their mobile phones. Of course I can't accuse anyone directly, but special privileges do spring to mind
Aha! Your allusion to a 'well known land owner' (who, I'm sure, is quite innocent of the wrongdoings of local youngsters - I have to say that or I'll be locked in the Tower)
puts me in mind of another well known - but far more infamous - landowner who haunts a considerable area of our part of Sussex.
He too aspires to membership of the elite: at least, he is constructing (and has been for the past 30 years) his very own palace to lord it in - both alive and dead. Not easy to spot from any public road, you can just see it in this street view
, over to the right of the road with its golden dome.
I have cycled past there a few times - albeit somewhat nervously.
Knowing of the reputation of this individual (whom I need not name, perhaps) - I'd certainly not care to encounter him or any of his henchmen at the wheel of a tractor - or any other vehicle. Luckily he's fairly reclusive - when not doing time in prison...
