Although a possible site proposed in the Part 11 of Waverley’s Daft Local Plan describes the site as land off Horsham Road, Awfold – it is  close to the Stovolds Hill site off  Dunsfold Road.  Nearby is  the Lydia Park Gipsy Site – now occupied by over 50 settled families and adjacent to Hill Copse and New Acres, which is a transit site – also home to another  75 plus gipsy families. The majority of families, we understand, are Romany Gipsies – but in recent years – some Irish Travellers have joined the settled community.

  1. Perhaps the Protect Our Waverley group will take a little time off from protecting Their Little corner of Waverley i.e. stopping development at Dunsfold airfield – and start protecting the countryside which could be invaded shortly by ‘travelling showmen.’ But don’t hold your breath, because breath is so good for you!
