Fred often walked his dogs through Baker’s Field but this afternoon, he arrived to see a towering fence and large padlocked gates barring the way.
‘What’s going on here then?’ he asked.
The greyhounds whined and sniffed around at all the new smells.
Fred spotted a fallen notice board, he picked it up and read aloud, ‘Land sold. Now owned by Red Brook Housing Contractors. Private property. Keep out!’
Throwing the sign away in disgust, Fred walked back to the path.
