70% of the land in England is OWNED BY 1% of the Population

70% of the land in England is owned by 1% of the population.‏


English Landed "Gentry"

70% of the land in England is owned by 1% of the population  :o  >:(

An estimated 160,000 families own 70% of the land in England, according to 2012 estimates. This ownership rate is equivalent to less than 1% of the total population.

The history of such a limited portion of the English population being landowners is thought to date to 1067, when William the Conqueror claimed all land as monarch property and then distributed  it to his allies.

Land in England is generally kept among the aristocratic families and handed down each generation, rather than being sold.
