And then they were gone
So the Cemetery Road drama has ended and life in that little corner of Tameside is beginning to return to normal.
I must say, unless someone else cleaned the field after the travellers moved on, this particular group did not conform to stereotypes because the field is immaculately clean with no rubbish anywhere in sight. There is the odd little reminder of their visit in the woods (be careful where you tread) and there are rumours circulating of vans being broken into etc, but as far as I know these are only rumours and what was the problem of the residents of Cemetery Road now becomes someone else's problem.
One thing is for sure, and that is the women dog walker gossipers who use that field on a daily basis 365 days of the year will have something to keep them gassing for years to come after this little drama.
