Event Description

No fracking on our doorstep

Two visits are in the pipeline to view sites and provide solidarity with anti-fracking campaigners in Surrey and Sussex.

On Friday, March 2nd members of Hackney Anti-Fracking Network take the train to Dorking Town station to then visit the anti-fracking camp at Bury Hill wood near Leith Hill and the Brockham well site.

Meet up at Dorking Town station 10.45-11.15 (trains from Waterloo @ 09.27 and 09.54)

Bring warm clothing and boots  

On Sunday, March 25th (meet up details later) we return to Dorking to tour several of the sites in the south-east. There are 13 exploratory sites in the south-east.

Opposition is essential to stop their expansion. They pose a serious threat to the local environment, create toxic and radioactive contamination of water, add to already serious air pollution and accelerate climate change. The Brockham well site is now one of the most threatening fracking developments in the UK. As an already existing conventional production site, operator Angus Energy is hoping to jump straight to producing tight oil from its newly drilled Brockham-X4 side-track. This would leapfrog Brockham ahead of better known sites, such as Preston New Road in Lancashire and Kirby Misperton in North Yorkshire, to be the UK’s only onshore unconventional oil & gas production site.
