If that isn't one Hector Christie at Tapeley Park I'll eat my battered hat. Was treated to some very David Brent esque comedy from the big man at one of their Health and Harmony festivals. Always loved the vibe of the place but there was something vaguely problematic/exploitative about it, thank you for articulating this. He really showed his arse in recent years by going on TV / to the Daily Mail with a 'Kick out the Hippies' campaign. I don't remember the details, if it came to fruition or was more of a publicity stunt.

Fascinating story, feels as though it should have been in the 70s. Let it crumble indeed - and then let’s eat it!

3 teaspoons / 15 grams of sugar to three bramleys and a bunch of raspberries sounds pretty tart?

It is pretty tart (and meant to be) but our recipe tester did try it with more, and found it too sweet (the frozen raspberries are also pretty sweet). However, it does suggest to add it to taste so this can be adjusted.
