Access road to smallholding, Pevensey Levels
The Union Jacks look resplendent in the soft breeze, but they are there, some say, for more than patriotic reasons. A gentleman whose origins are in the Middle East has purchased the land at this point to use as a private petting zoo. He also owns the land a hundred metres to the south where two large white lions stood either side of that respective access road. The local parish and district councils complained that he did not have planning permission to place the lions there and duly won their case.
In response, the owner of the land has now placed the lions further back from the entrance and has erected flagpoles at either access road instead. The local councils also complained about this, but their complaint somewhat backfired when the owner proceeded to fly the Union flag. Thus, the complaint came to an end, as council members did not wish to be seen as 'unpatriotic'!
