Comedy Spooky House Type film from 60's or 70's

Hi I thought i would bump this question i asked before in the hope someone new might know it... this is a movie in colour from the 60' or 70's british i think it's along the lines of the old ealing type comedies i remember watching when they were shown on BBC2 or Ch4 it revolves around a village with a large manor house that when the current crusty owner dies is bequeathed to a young rogue all the villagers assume hes going to keep it in the manner of his relative but are shocked when on his arrival he announces its going to be flogged off to the highest bidder ( recall a scene where hes met by all in sundry at the local train station ) anyhoo the villagers ( who i think are involved in some sort of money making scam with the house ) decide to bump him off in one bizarre way or another ( i recall a scene where they stretch a rope across the road but are foiled by some pure chance ) i think in the end the rogue falls in love with a local girl and everything ends ok im sorry i cannot recall anymore info other than that and its been driving me crazy trying to find ihe name i would be most grateful if someone can put me out of my misery
