Important English historic site may be sold for preservation reasons

When members of the Northamptonshire County Council bought Chester Farm near Irchester several years ago, they never dreamed they might need to put the historic site up for sale to keep it from falling into disrepair, but now that may be necessary.

Chester Farm includes "the remains of a Roman walled town, a Saxon village and farm buildings dating back to the 16th century," all of which could be lost if the funds are not found to save them.
