Historic Knees


A fine pair of knees

Controversy currently surrounds the decision made by the National Trust to spend three million pounds renovating the knees of a British aristocrat.

The charity, which regularly makes funds available for the preservation of significant national treasures, was approached by Lord Crapply, 4th Earl of Winalot, after his legs were declared unsafe in a surveyor's report.


Lord Crapply, whose spleen was declared an area of outstanding beauty in 2002, has defended the grant, claiming that he is of historic importance and that the work will ensure that his knees will be enjoyed by many generations to come.

A spokesman for the National Trust has said that the work should be completed early next year, and that Lord Crapply's legs will be open to the public from April until late September.
