Lightning goes for the nearest and highest earthed point.

If you are in the countryside on a flat plain, there might
be a problem. Why not put a lightning conductor at the
top of a tree, securely earthed with a thick strap.

I cannot imagine that anyone in a town or village has
much ot worry about. There is bound to be a nearby
better route for the voltage to go for.
