When English Heritage bought Apethorpe Hall, they planned to do it up, and then recoup the enormous investment of public money by selling it off. Theory and practice have proven rather different and could yet leave the taxpayer with a bill running to millions. The scale of the task is enormous – seven million pounds has been spent and another ten million pounds need to be spent before things like installing electricity are even to be considered. And English Heritage cannot sell it at any price.
