The Trust is currently celebrating the fact that its membership has risen. Hurrah. But there’s no mention of the likely reason: it has just banned trail hunting from its land and as a direct result people are rejoining.

It also supports the too-short Stonehenge tunnel, something else which appalls many people. Perhaps if that policy was reversed maybe many more thousands of missing subscriptions can be regained.

If so then the two policies will be seen as damaging the Trust’s OWN interest which many would see as mismanagement.
