Big C of E landholdings on Sussex coastal plain around Chichester, as at Oving...which date back a millennium and more. Large parts dug for gravel and now flooded pits. Rest are East Anglian style agribusiness arable.

Much/most parish glebe land has been sold for housing. Most old big site rectories have been sold for development or posh homes,

  "Land slip

  In 1872 the Church of England was the biggest landowner in Britain, with 
  2.2 million acres, most of it rented out to farmers. Now it has slipped 
  out of the top ten landlords"

  -- does anyone know what happened to all this land now its seems reduced 
  to barely over 100,000 acres ?

  -- also any clues on colonial land crimes by the Churches of Britain 
  including the CoE?

  If people hadn't followed it ...David Cameron's PR seems to have kicked 
  up some fuss recently about how Christina Britain is and joined in by 
  the to be expected nutjobs counterclaiming how tolerant, diverse and 
  wonderful the place is for Easter conversations.
  The latest comedy is that the apologist for Iraqi civilian mass murder 
  Jack Straw taking the side of Cameron holding the cross high.
