Summary
The Ferguson Gang was a mysterious and deeply eccentric group of women in the 1930s who combined anarchic stunts, fine dining and saving the English countryside. Disturbed by the growing destruction of our landscape and historic buildings they started to raise money for the National Trust, which a masked member would deliver in bizarre ways - Victorian coins sewn into a goose's carcass, 100 pound notes wrapped around cigars and cheques stuffed into miniature bottles. In between stunts they travelled the country finding new places under threat, fuelled by hampers from Fortnums. They maintained their anonymity until death, but this biography unmasks them all for the first time
