Interestingly, the land owners have already started work on the proposed site by felling a large tree by the Blacksmith’s shop and making a dirt entrance in an attempt to “provide a safe access to and from the site” (one of the few requirements). Where once stood a nice tree now a gaping hole with a long cement barrier in front. I have no doubt that this proposed caravan site will look just as wonderful as the sign-ridden Farm Shop with the lovely garbage-filled polytunnel behind, next to the sawed off tree stumps.
I am not against caravan sites per say, but at the strong arm approach with which the land owner attempts to force one on the residents of Clymping. I would also not mind if there was not a history of substandard looking and maintained establishments. This is just another step toward massive development in the village.
Sightings for the 17/1 Patch fairly dead this morning, in the horse paddock a Stonechat, 5 Song Thrushes, plus 4 Grey Partridge in the field behind. On the beach c. 45 Sanderling, and 10 Med Gull, at Poole Place. The bird of the day was a SHAG off Poole Place.
