In the month when the cause of greater access has been marked by commemorations of the Great Kinder Trespass 80 years ago, another wealthy landowner has been beaten by ordinary members of the public who just want to go walking
- Jeremy Clarkson.
And while the Kinder Trespassers were breaking the law of the land at that time, the Top Gear presenter has lost a case over his decision to divert walkers off a right of way near his converted lighthouse at Langness Point on the Isle of Man.
Clarkson and his wife had claimed it was a matter of human rights as his privacy was being infringed, but Deemstrer David Doyle turned down the appeal.
The presenter has made his dislike of ramblers clear in the past, previously arguing against the public funding of RAF mountain rescue services.
He claimed people who take to the mountains should do so entirely at their own risk.
Walkers on the Isle of Man can enjoy a variety of coastal and hilly scenery, with the highest peak being the 2,036 ft Snaefell.
