James Dyson has already spent £150 million on 17,000 acres of land and is now searching in Oxfordshire for more
Vacuum cleaner billionaire James Dyson has become a man of the soil. He has already spent £150 million on 17,000 acres of rural Lincolnshire and is said to be searching for more farmland to bag.

His company, Beeswax Farming (Rainbow) Limited, has now asked agents to hunt for more farmland to buy in Oxfordshire.

The savvy move may mean that his three children could avoid a substantial chunk of inheritance tax, as it is not incurred on farmland.

The clever inventor is not short of bricks and mortar to hand on, though. He has a Chelsea townhouse, a magnificent French château and Dodington Park — a Georgian stately home in Gloucestershire.
