"As two of Britain's finest stately homes, they have played host to royalty and presidents, and their sumptuous facades have provided backdrops to film and television costume dramas.

"But now Waddesdon Manor and Hartwell House in Buckinghamshire are to take centre stage in a saga of their own, as their powerful occupants combine to challenge the government over its plans for HS2, the high speed train line between London and Birmingham.

"In a move that threatens to become a major test of the government's claims that it will take extensive measures to minimise the impact of line, the National Trust, whichs owns Hartwell, and the Waddesdon estate, home to the financier Lord Rothschild, is to submit detailed plans for the construction of a 7km 'green corridor' running past the properties and the town of Aylesbury."
