Rural Dogging Hotspot Targeted By Police

Monday August 5 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A RURAL hotspot known for dogging is being targeted by police following complaints about naked gay men seen 'frolicking' in woodland.

West Bretton village councillors have asked police to step up patrols in the Green Lane area after they received reports from the public about naked men spotted in woods near the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

The problem was raised at a parish council meeting, which was chaired by Cllr Mike Hofton.

"It's an area a lot of people pass through for dog walking because there is a back entrance to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park," he said.

"It's a well-used pathway. It's quite secluded but you can get vehicles down there.

"At various times for the last three to four years people have reported there has been adult activities going off in the the woods and reports of naked men in there.

"It quietened down for a while and recently restarted again."

Cllr Hofton said the secluded area wasn't just attracting gay men but also heterosexual couples.

"Some people have said it is gay people and some have said it is couples," he said. "The police were informed and have said they're going to try and concentrate on that area, and are starting mounted patrols."

O.M.G. Haven't the police got more serious things to be getting on with, other than riding around on horses looking for naked people having a frolic in a bush. Let em get on with it, same as flapper says, winter is on the way, so if they want to run around freezing their bits off, let em. Silly buggers will grow out of it sooner or later, especially when they get arthritis in their bits n pieces. lol.

I agree with you Maud - & to be honest, if I'm out walking my dog - I don't want to see it either. Get a room!!

targeting the area - surely the police have their own area to wave their truncheons

So what would your answer be when your casually riding your horse along the bridal path and a couple emerge and scare the horse which makes the rider fall off? They were evidently having a fling in the woods and didnt help nor did they apologise, would you just say 'oh leave them to it, not harming anyone. Or they'll be gone soon' ?

I would just laugh and carry on because im not a stupid leftist who stamps everything with health and safety, and oooo that might offend my eyes..

Live and let live is my motto (and no, I'm not gay nor do I engage in "dogging" activities).
I do not believe for one minute that a 5yr old has been witness to this kind of activity nor that a horse has been scared by a couple emerging from a bush ............... the authors of those articles ought to start writing "fiction stories" for a living as I am sure it is just their imagination running wild - or maybe wishful thinking !

There appears to be some unintended humour in WAB's reference to the "back entrance" to Yorkshire Sculpture Park......................

Haha we have this in cawthorne, its mainly rich swingers but you get the picture

Bloody hell someones back entrance is big enough for a car!!

How can people tell they are gay men that are running around naked? They could quite easily be heterosexual men running around naked hoping some well turned-on female will notice the size of their manhood - If they have any manhood that's sizeable enough to show off. Not all men that run around naked outside are gay! As for the actual practise that is taking place there's suddenly a huge change of opinion over there in Barnsley, isn't there? Not long ago it was reported that a man and a woman were seen bonking off in the bus station and all hell broke lose over that, everybody in the town CONDEMNED the couple. Now here we have (presumably) loads of couples and men running around stark naked and everybody is CONDONING their behaviour. OMG, there's nowt so queer as folk.

WHICH PART OF **** OFF DONT DA UNDERSTAND PRICK

Reply Posted by brie on Monday August 5 2013 at 19:42
whilst not condoning any of it the difference between people having sex in a crowded bus station being filmed by kids and outside in some woods. presumably attempting privacy is massive.

Aww just leave it an take it for what it is....frollocking good fun. Sounds like a Benny Hill type thing. Just imagine watching from behind a bush when the bobbies turn up..what a laff. They not hurting owt. Its a waste of money upping the police patrols. If tha don't like it,keep thi nose art!!!!

ha ha ha, walk your doggy's somewhere else and whilst you are at it (pardon the pun) take your 5 year olds with you. The fresh air will do them good. That should keep the horses from getting a freight lol :)

Ahhh i thought mustapha would comment, im sure you are a regular in these sort's of places well being in the navy and all..

Reply Posted by anon on Tuesday August 6 2013 at 17:53
Some may see this as fun, but what about the disgarded used condoms that will be left lying around, not good if your kids picks one up.

Reply Posted by willy w+nker on Wednesday August 7 2013 at 12:53
They should carry doggy bags an put them in the doggypoo bins....sorry anon, its tickled me this tail......take your point there though,but surely the mounted police being involved,s taking a liberty with rate payers money..its just something that's happening in life today. If they get collared they,ll not get punished so why spend our cash on it.....maybe punishment could be litter picking?? Haha
