How would you feel about sitting in front of that nice old village pub on a sunny afternoon while convoys of 40-ton tankers roll past six feet away? Deerland Energy's plans to drill for shale gas in the pretty village of Fenstock are going well. The company is looking at big profits with scientists and Councillors open to lucrative offers. The only slight snag is a ragged band of protesters, headed by just another ‘mad old biddy’, Elizabeth Blackwood.
