Balcombe drilling site protest


We have visited the Balcome site today to show our solidarity with the locals there.  The site is somewhat different to Fernhusrt in that there are no residential properties in the immediate vicinity and road access is better.  And it is, of course, not in the South Downs National Park.

There is heavy security at the site; large gates, men in black uniforms and a sign saying "Keep Out - Firearms in use"!
