Stranger things happen on the way to Northlew
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

January 16, 2018: It has just come to my notice. Strange things are going on on the road to Northlew. A few months ago something strange appeared in one of the hedges. It was visible only to someone entering one of the farm tracks, off the main road and was positioned well into the hedge. As the attached photo shows, it's a piece of wooden board, roughly 15 x 6 inches, painted matt black and with twin oval shapes, made of luminous yellow plastic, stuck on it. It was fastened to a small branch in the hedgerow using several twists of stout wire. None of the locals are owning up to knowing anything about the sign. It took wire cutters and industrial gloves to remove it! Any ideas? Is it a warning from someone? Are we being watched and by whom? Google, Microsoft, GCHQ? A curse from beyond? A Halloween Prank? Jilly Chandler says “With regard to the picture of the sign on the Hatherleigh web site, with two ovals on it, could it be something to do with Badger hunting, as something like this was on the ground in Hatherleigh some time back, although that one turned out to be where the runners had to go? But I remember someone thinking it was about badger hunting.“
