Before this gets out of hand......

Lord Marshall of Goring was the title given to Walter Charles Marshall
(an Englishman) who was involved with WANO and the start of the British
Nuclear Power Industry.

Careful googling has revealed some interesting links and the garden
In an article (Who Speaks for Science) published by IMPRIMIS (Hillsdale
College, MI) the former Secretary of the AEC, Dixy Lee Ray writes
"In the words of Walter Marshall, Lord Marshall of Goring:      "In my
own country, the United Kingdom, I like to point out that the average
Englishman's garden occupies 1/10 of an acre. By digging down one metre,
we can extract 6 kilograms of thorium, 2 kilograms of uranium, and 7,000
kilograms of potassium -- all of them radioactive waste, not man-made,
but the residue left over when God created this 

So the context of the reference to Lord Marshall of Goring and the
"radioactivity in the garden", while obscure, are perfectly acceptable
and appropriate to the topic of the thread.
