Haddiscoe Pit

PUBLISHED: 11:59 12 May 2008 | UPDATED: 20:22 05 July 2010

LIKE Wendy Alford (April 25) I too would like to know who threatens the peace of the village of Haddiscoe.

Who wants to tear out its heart, pray even gouge it out and not only flood it but as I understand it fill it with household rubbish?

I grew up in Haddiscoe and often walked through it, went to the top of the Church Hill and through the graveyard where my mother now lies.

I grew up in Haddiscoe and often walked through it, went to the top of the Church Hill and through the graveyard where my mother now lies. Haddiscoe still feels like home.

My father Stanley Gilbert served on many of the church and village committees whilst living in the village and still served on them after moving to Lowestoft. He often visits the village to attend church. When on the passing of his dear wife Dorothy, my mother, we replaced the air pump in the church organ.

Now I find the beautiful village of Haddiscoe is going to have lorries drive through it on roads that that are barely wide enough, over marshes that have more twist and turns than a rollercoaster ride. Bulldozer and pit gear noises will be heard instead of the bird song.

I would also like to know why, after many years of villagers pointing out the dangers (after many road accidents) at a certain road junction why it has now been upgraded?

This junction just happens to be in the area of the aforementioned pit. Is this getting ready for the volume of pit traffic that is expected?

It is obvious those scratching, scrawling, pen pushing, public servants have never driven through Haddiscoe.

I would like to add my roar to the pride of the villagers and village of Haddiscoe.
