Scutchamer Knob

Artificial Mound


Vandals at the Knob

Scutchamer's Knob, has always been a a glowing belisha beacon on the beautiful Berkshire downs for rave parties and illicit camping trips - especially during the early '90's. Largely helped by its ease of accessability but yet fairly remote location.

Unfortunately, it now proving to be popular with our local 'yoof' community, wryly twisitng it's older meaning of a 'moot' point about face.

As well as the usual load of cans, plastic bags and even car doors to be found there, I was astonished and saddened to see that ten or so of the trees to the left of the mound have been heavily vandalised by green paint (I've posted then pictures in the Image section).

A local tree surgeon has recommended that the paint is allowed to weather off naturally, as forcing it's removal may actually damage the tree itself.

So, next time your down there please stop and admire our new fluorescent world - sheer magic!
