Highclere Castle is not for sale, Earl tells Lord Lloyd-Webber

In its 331-year association with Highclere Castle, the Carnarvon family has survived such perils as war, political intrigue and even the curse of Tutankhamun without ever losing its grip on its ancestral home. Now composer, Lord Lloyd-Webber, who lives just a few miles from Hampshire’s grandest stately home, has said he would like to buy it to house his £100 million art collection after the Carnarvons announced they needed to find £11.75m for essential repairs.
