English village up for sale - for just £22.5 million!

Last year an island was up for sale and this year an entire village in England is up for sale! An entire village, complete with two blacksmiths, a shop and a cricket club, has been put up for sale for a cool £22.5 million. Nestling in the rolling countryside of the North Wessex Downs, Linkenholt is the archetypal English village. Now, for a cool £22.5 million, it could all be yours, as the entire village – including every house in it – goes up for sale. The historic village of 22 houses and cottages is part of a 2,000 acre estate which will go on the market later this month. (link via telegraph.co.uk) Here's a selection of various photos of Linkenholt (via geograph.org): Linkenholt - Post Office & Village Shop Linkenholt - St Peters Church Cottages in Linkenholt Farmland near Linkenholt It looks very picturesque. I would love to buy the village... although there's the small matter of drumming up £22.5. Oh well. I'm sure there are still some very wealthy people around, even in these tough times so it will probably be snapped up quickly.
