- Edit My Images
I don't see how it's ambiguous. This is the final line that kind of sums it all up, and if you read all of the access rules it's quite clear.
"As with outdoor photography, any photographs taken are strictly for private use, and enquiries about selling or publishing photographs should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org."
You can take and display the images as you want. But if money is going to be made they want a piece of it, and IMO that's not necessarily unreasonable. After all, there are a lot of expenses that go into owning/maintaining properties that they are allowing you to enjoy.
I suspect you don't understand the nature of the National Trust. It is a charity set up to own land "for the nation" and its income comes from membership fees, donations, legacies, etc., as well as a certain amount from commercial activities (tea shops, giftware), etc.
As well as stately homes and other buildings, it owns huge swathes of wild land all over Britain, often bought as a result of appeals to the general public, on behalf of the British people. For example, the laughable but very successful "Save Snowdon" appeal which enabled them to "save" Snowdon. But from what or whom?
