    We're due in France to start work on Monday and have just been asked to go to see the people at Wycliffe.

    I can't much info except the owner is English but rarely there, sounds interesting.

    If it is Paul McCartney he is a very down to earth bloke. When he first met the one legged gold digger Heather Mills he went with her to visit her family in Washington. He turned up in the local working mens club unannounced and had a few pints one Sunday morning.

    That's what they've told us, this must be the new owners we're seeing.

    Looks canny.
