Interesting similarity for Newton Poppleford

4 Aug

Balcombe in Surrey is currently up in arms about drilling and likely fracking on their doorsteps.  In today’s Sunday Times a reporter writes of locals who are afraid to venture their views and says:

“It turns out that behind a facade of wealthy commuterdom, Balcombe is feudal.  The land being drilled is owned by the Balcombe Estate, which is also landlord for 100 homes and businesses.  The estate is owned by Simon Greenwood, described on its website as having ‘a passion for all aspects of the countryside and its pursuits’ “.

And that includes fracking.

Remind you of anything?
