In 1968 Mr Albion Harman, the last owner of Lundy Island, in the Bristol Channel, died. His surviving two sisters, faced with a challenging future running the island, put Lundy up for auction. An appeal fund for GBP150,000 was started but unfortunately this failed. At the last minute of the auction Jack Hayward (later Sir Jack Hayward) bid the asking price and bought the island. He immediately donated it to the National Trust, who in turn leased it to the Landmark Trust, who still manage and look after this amazing wildlife and marine conservation area today. In 2019 the National Trust and Landmark Trust celebrate those fifty landmark years. Following on from the success of Lundy Through Time, author Simon Dell has written this book looking back at those fifty years and charting the significant changes in that time.
