Hartlebury Common Tranquil heaven is now a graveyard
7:00am Wednesday 9th January 2013 in Letters
HARTLEBURY Common is the graveyard that once was a little piece of heaven just off the A4025.
It is just heartbreaking to walk along the top of common and see the desecration of such tranquil beauty – now so quiet with no morning song from the birds or the call to their beds in the evening. Only the harsh noise of the traffic! So many friendships have been forged over the years, both two- and four- legged variety, appreciating the quiet beauty of our common, plus the many visitors who drive to the area just to enjoy it.
Walk back along the bottom of the common and the stark reality rips at the heart and we shed a tear for what we have lost and will never see again. The common bows its head. It has lost it’s soul. So sad.
The ‘experts’ have robbed us of our local much-loved treasure. They would not listen to us when their intentions were made public – refusing to take questions.
Why is it that these meddling bureaucrats feel they have the right to destroy so much of our local heritage and spoil the enjoyment of so many ordinary folk?
