The Sunday Times reports that permission has been granted to Sir Anthony Bamford to demolish the lodge at Oddington House. Sir Anthony bought the Grade-II listed house as a £10m wedding gift to his son – who decided to decline (wonder what else was on the wedding list!). Rather than sell the house it appears the JCB tycoon has grand plans – but looking at a photograph of the lodge it is obviously a substantial and attractive building so one hopes that the report is wrong as this sets a rather worrying precedent.
