Windham County is a county located in the northeastern corner of the U. S. state of Connecticut. As of the 2010 census, the population was 118,428, making it the least populous county in Connecticut, it forms the core of the region known as the Quiet Corner. Windham County is included in the Worcester, MA-CT Metropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Boston-Worcester-Providence, MA-RI-NH-CT Combined Statistical Area; the entire county is within the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor, as designated by the National Park Service. The area, now Windham County became of interest to the English around 1635, but went unsettled for over fifty years due to its lack of access to the shore. John Winthrop took a strong interest to this land, purchased land from the Narragansetts, was given permission by the court of Connecticut to settle in October 1671. In 1678, a tract of land, called Joshua’s Tract, was willed to Connecticut officials, in February 1682, it was gifted to Samuel and Daniel Mason.

In 1684, 1200 acres of land was sold to Jonathan Curtis, Thomas Dudley, Samuel, among others, by the Nipmunks. Windham County was created from Hartford and New London counties on May 12, 1726 by an act of the Connecticut General Court; the act establishing the county states: That the west bounds of the town of Lebanon, the north bounds of Coventry, the north bounds of Mansfield till it meet with the southwest bounds of Ashford, the west bounds of Ashford, the east bounds of Stafford, the Massachusetts line on the north, Rhode Island line on the east, the north bounds of Preston, north bounds of Norwich, containing the towns of Windham, Plainfield, Mansfield, Pomfret, Ashford and Mortlake, shall be one entire county, called by the name of County of Windham. In May 1749, the town of Woodstock New Roxbury, Worcester County Massachusetts, was unilaterally annexed by Connecticut and assigned to Windham County. In 1785, the town of Union was transferred to the newly formed Tolland County. Over the next century, Windham County would lose several towns to Tolland and New London counties: Coventry to Tolland in 1786, Lebanon to New London in 1824, Columbia and Mansfield to Tolland in 1827, Voluntown to New London in 1881.

Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003

The Land Reform Act 2003 is an Act of the Scottish Parliament which establishes statutory public rights of access to land and makes provisions under which bodies representing rural and crofting communities may buy land. The 2003 Act includes three main provisions: the creation of a legal framework for land access, the community right to buy, the crofting community right to buy; the first part of the act codifies into Scots law the right to universal access to land in Scotland. The act establishes a right to be on land for recreational and certain other purposes and a right to cross land; the rights exist only if they are exercised responsibly, as specified in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. Access rights apply to any non-motorised activities, including walking, horse-riding and wild camping, they allow access on inland water for canoeing, rowing and swimming. The second part of the act establishes the community right to buy, allowing communities with populations of up to 10,000 to register an interest in land, entitling them to first right of refusal should the owner put the land up for sale or intend to transfer ownership, provided a representative community body can be formed to carry out the purchase.

The third part establish the crofting community right to buy which allows crofting communities to purchase crofts and associated land from existing landowners. It differs from the community right to buy in that it can be exercised at any time, regardless of whether the land has been put on the market, allowing crofting communities to purchase land in the absence of a willing seller.

Nightshade is an original novel written by Mark Gatiss and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features Ace. A prelude to the novel penned by Gatiss, appeared in Doctor Who Magazine #190; the year is 1968, as the BBC rebroadcasts episodes of the classic SF serial "Nightshade", the townsfolk of Crook Marsham prepare for a lonely Christmas. At the local retirement home, actor Edmund Trevithick learns that a reporter is coming to interview him about his role as Professor Nightshade, goes to sleep dreaming of past successes, but that night, the scientists at the local radiotelescope are baffled by a sudden energy surge from an unknown source, which floods their instruments and blots out the signals they were monitoring from a nova in the vicinity of Bellatrix. Trevithick wakes to find that his window has been smashed open, he faints when an evil voice in the darkness hisses the name of Professor Nightshade. Meanwhile, Jack Prudhoe is drowning his sorrows at Lawrence Yeadon's pub, thinking back on the failure he's made of his life, when his wife Win runs by the window—young again, as full of life as she was before the death of their young son crushed her spirit.

Delirious with joy, Jack follows her out of the village to the moor… where something horrible happens. The TARDIS materialises in Crook Marsham as dawn breaks; the Doctor is in a pensive mood, he shouts angrily at Ace when she finds his granddaughter Susan's clothing and dresses in it as a joke. Telling Ace that he needs to think about things for a while, he sends her off to explore the town while he visits the local monastery to reconsider his self-appointed role as guardian of the cosmos. Ace meets Robin Yeadon, the pub owner's teenage son, becomes curious when Vijay Degun, a technician from the radiotelescope, comes in search of a working telephone only to find that the entire town's phone system is down. Seeking excitement, Ace hides in the back seat of Vijay's car and is taken to the radiotelescope, while exploring she finds a guard's decomposing body near a hole in the fence, she enters the building to tell the others. Lawrence Yeadon's wife Betty goes into hysterics while preparing for a bath, claiming to have seen her dead brother Alf climbing out of the water.

She has always blamed herself for his death during the war, since she feels she shamed him into enlisting. Lawrence sends Robin to fetch Doctor Shearsmith, but Robin finds Shearsmith's offices empty and instead goes to the old folks’ home to ask Jill Mason for help. Jill is seeing off her charges as they leave town to visit their families, Constable Lowcock is questioning Trevithick about the previous night's incident, he and Trevithick accompany Robin back to the pub, where Lawrence tells Robin to take care of Betty while he and Lowcock fetch help from the next village over. The Doctor spends some time with Abbot Winstanley, reads up on the history of the village. During the Civil War, Marsham Castle was destroyed as if by heavenly fire, on the ground on which the radiotelescope was built. Not concerned, the Doctor returns to the pub to fetch Ace, only to find the village in a turmoil as more villagers are found to have vanished during the night. Trevithick tries to interest the Doctor in his story, but the Doctor doesn’t want to get involved and decides to look for Ace at the radiotelescope.

Robin overhears him and decides to accompany him, since Betty seems to be sleeping now and Robin wants to see more of Ace. However, soon after they leave, there is another surge of energy at the radiotelescope—and Betty awakens to find her dead brother standing outside her door. Trevithick, on his way back to the retirement home, is attacked by one of the insectoid aliens from the first "Nightshade" serial, but it vanishes into thin air when Lowcock and Yeadon return—retching and fainting, claiming that they were unable to leave the village; when Vijay goes to fetch his lover Holly to help analyse the readings from the array, he finds the ghost of James, her dead lover, sitting at the edge of her bed. James’ image dissolves into a fountain of light which nearly consumes Holly before Vijay manages to snap her awake. Meanwhile, the old folks’ bus crashes on its way out of town when the driver falls victim to the same force that prevented Lowcock and Yeadon from leaving. Tim Medway, the BBC reporter coming to interview Trevithick, feels no such influence when he enters the town, when he comes across the accident he helps Jill to evacuate the stunned old folk to the monastery.

Medway stops at the police station to report the accident, only to find them occupied by the disappearance of so many townspeople. He continues on to the pub, where Trevithick fills him in on the unbelievable events and decides to alert the Doctor, who seemed to believe his story. Medway, unable to accept what he's stumbled into agrees to drive Trevithick to the radiotelescope to look for the Doctor; the Doctor and Robin find Jack Prudhoe's decomposing body on the moors, continue on to the radiotelescope with some urgency. Once he's sure Ace is safe, the Doctor studies the readings the scientists have been taking, but can make no sense of them, he and Ace decide to redirect their investigation towards the history of the town, go to the monastery while Robin returns home. There, he finds; when his furious father accuses Robin of abandoning her, Robin bolts from the pub to join Ace back at the monastery. There, the Doctor and Ace find that not only was the radiotelescope built on the grounds of Marsham Castle, but an archaeological
