In the early hours of Sunday morning a group of
us moved into and occupied the premises of Langborough
Farm near Hinkley Point nuclear power
station. The old farmhouse premises, on a site that EDF has earmarked for it's proposed new nuclear reactor, is now a legal squat. To help them settle into their new home without any hassle the occupiers would welcome friendly visitors today and in the days ahead.
To find your way by Public Footpath to Langborough Farm, see
attached map, or go to half-way through the youtube film
“West Country Walks” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWp_ut-Uya4
Remember that access to the farm is by Public Right Of Way,
and if anyone tries to obstruct you they will be committing
an offence under section 137 of the Highways Act 1980, punishable by a fine of up to £1000.There are many paths across the site, but your best bet may be Wick Drove Lane, where there is a lay-by for parking. Walk down to the Power Station entrance then turn left up the public footpath.
One of the occupiers said “We really want you to come and visit and spread the word. We are fighting against a corrupt planning
decision, made at the highest levels, which
favours the nuclear corporations over the democratic
process, and we will feel much safer here if we have visible
(It's cold out there so please take warm food, water, any
spare tents, blankets or bedding you may have and anything
useful you can think of when you go!)
If you've got time come and stay!
