Julian Assange’s Bail House Is Vaughan Smith’s Suffolk Pile Ellingham Hall: Photos

JULIAN Assange sold out Wikileaks when he became a celebrity and let a bunch of grandstanding, rich posers buy him out of HMP Wandsworth and slide themselves into the story.

To finally stick the knife into the once great site that was Wikileaks, Julian Assange will be spending some time in the Georgian splendour of Ellingham Hall, Bungay, Suffolk, England. It’s the 650-acre the home of journalist and Frontline Club founding member Vaughan Smith.

Ellingham is a “sustainable farm and shoot in traditional parkland“. Some of the produce ends up at the Frontline Club’s restaurant:

Nowhere else within 100 miles sources raw materials from its own farm, offers wines at not much above retail prices, and has a chef who puts his heart into every dish.

What’s on offer?

With the winds and rain beating down- escape to the delights of the Frontline restaurant to warm up on rack of lamb, rump steak or roast cod- followed by a cheeky steamed treacle pudding with fresh Jersey cream…

Can you kill it yourself – Julian? Lookout!! (He sure can pull the birds.)

We offer days of between 150-200 birds, charging £25 per bird. Full teams are preferred. The shoot makes a very good day for 8 guns but 9 can be accommodated for teams. Six drives are chosen for each day according to the weather and wind direction on the day.

Vaughan is a journalist of independent means:

Prior to setting up Frontline, Vaughan was briefly a microlight test pilot and cameraman. Before that he was an officer in the British Army’s Grenadier Guards, serving in Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Germany. He captained the British Army shooting team and won the inter-army rifle shooting championship.

Vaughan also owns and runs a farm in eastern England, which provides organic ingredients for the Frontline Restaurant. As the manager of Frontline, he is in charge of the management of a two million pound business, and employs more than 40 people.

All very agreeable for any true capitalist, such as Julian Assange.
