Selling the family silver AGAIN we relive our Conservative past

Three historic Pembrokeshire buildings - including a 13th century tower - face new futures.
Barnard's Tower in Pembroke, Lydstep Palace in Lydstep and Pater Church Tower in Pembroke Dock have been put on the market by Pembrokeshire County Council.
Barnard's Tower is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, while Lydstep Palace and Pater Church Tower are Grade I listed.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for a private owner or organisation to play a role in enhancing our County's past," said the Leader of Pembrokeshire County Council, Councillor Jamie Adams.
"These buildings have been in the Council's ownership for some time but unfortunately - due to the current challenging economic times -  we are unable to continue caring for them and they have been identified as surplus to requirements."
Located in Pembroke, Barnard's Tower is a 13th century three-storey tower, which overlooks the Mill Pond and is part of the town wall. It was founded by William de Valence.
Lydstep Palace is sited in the centre of the village and is a late medieval house with a first floor hall. The manorial court of Manorbier and Penally is believed to have been held in the building.
Pater Church Tower in Pembroke Dock is probably the oldest building in the town. The medieval tower is situated within the dockyard wall.
Further details about the buildings can be found on
None of these buildings can be converted for domestic or commercial use, if they do not sell will PCC abandon their maintenance?
