Shockingly it seems that plans may be afoot to try and build on Britford water meadows!!!

unbelivable,i find it hard to belive any developer can just rape the countryside like this, i understand the greedy land owners are not maintaining the river banks at the moment and some riverbank has subsided,i hope the london anglers association join the fight to stop this obscenity.

What a ridiculous idea.

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Progress is fine, but it's gone on for too long

Madness - what do they think water meadows do when the river runs high - or does it never rain on Hampshire?
