Madonna Marks Out Her Borderline
- Material girl wants to keep you off her land

MADONNA won't be crazy for you if wandering across her 1,200 acre estate is your idea of a good day out.

The pop star is trying to remove the right of ramblers to walk on 100 acres of her massive land holding at Ashcombe House in Wiltshire after the Countryside Agency defined the area as 'open country'.

Lawyers acting for Madonna will press her case today at a planning meeting where they are likely to bring up the fact the star's estate is used for hunting so should therefore be designated as agricultural land.

"People with a legal interest in the land have a right to appeal if they consider the land we had marked on the map doesn't meet the criteria for open country or common land," said a Countryside Agency spokesperson.
