 Landmark Education: Experience, Investigation, Research & Analysis
Fisher actually did a study on Landmark participants which concluded that there was no evidence of the participants being transformed in any way other than short term perceived control over their lives, dependent upon the Landmark training to maintain that perception of control.
Landmark is training and coaching a way of living that makes you feel powerful but truly only provides short term "wins" with no long term consistency of life except at Landmark.
Landmark gets free labor and more participants, more money in the corporate pocket; however, it appears that the participants may never reach any level of long term peace and happiness if they stay internally oriented and terminating by nature except to stay in the Landmark structure.

 Telegraph | Entertainment | The reluctant Landmark   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
It was Sir John Smith, founder of the Landmark Trust, who came up with the ingenious idea that the best way to preserve vulnerable small historic buildings, and to keep them free from the trappings of modern life, was to restore them and give them a new life as holiday homes.
This is a serious conservation issue that the Landmark Trust is ideally placed to respond to, but if it takes the architect banging on its door and refusing to accept no for an answer to take on a house then it is likely to fumble the issue.
What is needed is for the Landmark Trust to make it publicly known that it is very keen to take on such properties, that it considers them equally as deserving as its more traditional properties.

 Jeanette Winterson - Journalism - Building Design - Landmark Trust
Founder of the Trust, Sir John Smith, defined 'holiday let' in his own terms, which were those of a mildly eccentric, confident Englishman of a certain class, with strong views on taste.
It is a pity though, when one of the Trust's stated aims is 'opening the eyes of as many people as possible.' Landmark wants us to notice buildings, look again at the environment, and understand the relationship between both.
Landmark is an amazing success story, and one that seems hardly credible in People's Britain, where cultural ideals are attacked as elitist and the media is the arbiter of taste.

Stonemasons were in the process of shifting, stitching and pointing the structure back together when Colin Briden, a buildings archaeologist commissioned by the Landmark Trust to analyse the building, noticed the similar between the elevation ofthe ruin and Capriccio on Ruins, a large watercolour painted by Robert Adam.
According to the Landmark Trust, the east elevation of the ruin corresponds so closely to the watercolour that there can be little doubt that William Aislabie saw Adam's painting and based the elevation upon it.
Mowbray Point, upon which The Ruin sits, was then leased to the Landmark Trust and the restoration is of it is part of a wider project taking place at Hackfall.

 Guardian | In praise of... the Landmark Trust   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
Step by step, without much fuss or national attention, the Landmark Trust has gone about its double task of saving remarkable buildings from ruin and providing engaging, distinctive and fairly affordable places for people to stay.
Among the many good things about Landmark's work is that the places it saves do not become museum pieces but earn their keep through the rent visitors pay to stay in them.
Landmark devotees all have their favourites: Fort Clonque on Alderney, cut off at high tide, or Lundy island, with its birds and pub in the Bristol channel, or the 18th-century Pineapple at Dunmore in Scotland - but even the most humble offer a charming way to see a new part of Britain.

 572 Pershore Road - Landmark Trust Holidays
This was for the Landmark Trust, a charity whose raison d'être was to acquire and renovate old buildings that were in some way exceptional or distinctive - castles, manors, follies, that sort of thing - and then hire them out to holiday makers.
By this time I'd already developed a fair amount of longing for a castle of my very own (no sign of it happening just yet, sadly), and spent several weekends stopping over in various ones, so the idea of having the full run of a place like that for an entire week was irresistible.
Naturally (?) enough the majority of people that went on this holiday were also members of the 572 crowd, and while the cast list has varied a bit from year to year this is generally known as the "572 Annual Holiday".
