The Surveyors Week 2

'The Surveyors : Week 2' chronicles the activities of Lord Peregrine and colleagues through another seven fast-paced days in the Oxford-based surveying practice. The Hon. Peregrine Vaughan-Uppington is a troubled enigma. Borderline at both Eton and Cambridge, decorated but denied military promotion, rejected by his noble family. But rising above it all, in one decade he has carved out a formidable reputation and created a new fortune. 'Week 2' features more dubious exploits and wealth-building escapades. A brush with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, the debunking of a damp-proofing 'specialist' and his cluster of flexible surveyors, an after-auction 'skimming' stratagem, and excellent progress with the Village Project by Peregrine's brother Sebastian, the 12th Earl of Eavesham. And much more besides. Locations include Magdalen College, Oxford for what it does best, Westminster Cathedral, Cheltenham Ladies' College and a daylight escape, the Lodge for Founders' Night, and the vast Eavesham Estate for the future.
