Dailt Telegraph: "Village rallies around couple living 'The Good Life' aboard double-decker bus"

Link to web site

"A couple who live in a double-decker bus and grow their own food have won a six-year battle to keep up their "Good Life" after the wealthy horse racing village of Lambourn rallied round and begged councillors to let them stay.

"... They won the admiration of villagers by clearing the land of weeds and brambles and gradually establishing a smallholding to support themselves, selling produce to the community and living a low carbon lifestyle in a double-decker bus, with a mini wind turbine to give them lighting and heat for their hen house incubators.

"But it's been a long, hard slog for the couple, with council planners insisting the smallholding did not meet red tape requirements."
