You'll have to be quick as it expires from the website today this evening, Wednesday, but news here about one of the grounds we visited regularly up to 10 years ago - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m ... s-11022020

From about 18 mins 40 sec in. The ground has been abandoned and is in a state, but someone has found a covenant which might prevent it being built on for the next 30-odd years.

The problem with covenants is that they offend against the common law rule against perpetuity. In terms that the dead should not control the living.

Interesting. I was under the impression that the 1964 Act resolved that question.

Well I am not a property lawyer. However assuming you mean the Married Women's property act I'm not quite sure how that he splitting of matrimonial property would affect an old covenant. But it is not an area in which I claim any great knowledge and am happy to be corrected if you know better.

From this point on, as it's about points of law and not football, I think it would be wise to leave it.
