Or perhaps the villain could be the Lake District National Park Authority- sure to object when Nancy and Co start harvesting reeds. Did they exist in the 40's? From their website:
Dwindling reed beds
Reed beds offer essential secure resting places for overwintering birds and breeding birds in the spring and summer. Read more in Birdspotting on Windermere. Reed fringes also help break up wave energy from wind and boat wakes and slow down the erosion of the shoreline.
Unfortunately reed beds are declining around the lake. We are working with organisations such as the Freshwater Biological Association, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Environment Agency, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and Natural England to find out why this is happening and to help provide solutions to encourage reed beds to start growing again.
We ask lake users not to land boats on shoreline areas with reed beds or take or drag boats through reed beds. They are also asked to avoid boating in the Wildlife Refuge areas in winter as marked on Your guide to Windermere leaflet.
Somehow I think that the GA's usefulness as a villain has been exploded by the events of PP.
It's been too long since I read CN. I thought they would all camp on WCI, although they'd need an extra tent when Joe, Bill and Pete appeared. (Makes note to dig through bookshelves...)
