One of Britain’s best loved beauty spots defiled by sex-mad doggers

A Gloucester beauty spot has become synonymous with an unfortunate anti-social pastime that may make you choke on your dinner.

Barrow Wake near Birdlip has become the go-to spot for local doggers – people who like to be watched having sex in public – looking for a good time.

To make matters worse, fly-tippers have taken to offloading their waste all over the tourist trap, wrecking the once glorious viewpoint.

Drug users regularly frequent the site and litter is reported to be unmissable.

One online reviewer said of the car park at Barrow Wake: “Stunning views and lovely walks. But this car park is so dodgy, wanted to watch the sunset but there was loads of people arriving after it was dark, men walking around and a motorbike driving up and down every few minutes, we felt so uncomfortable we left.”

Another said: “A lot of action in the woods at bottom end of car park very good if you like ***** ****** *** ! :)”

However, future have-a-go-humpers that pop down to the notorious site may find themselves being spied on in a less than erotic way; CCTV cameras are now monitoring the location 24 hours a day.

The initiative is designed to ward off prospective public fornicators intent on using the viewpoint off the A417 for lewd acts. The high-tech cameras are encased in armour and anything that triggers them gets recorded.

The appropriately named Operation Hilltop is a Gloucestershire police and Police and Crime Commissioner-led operation designed to discourage illegal and anti-social behaviour at the picturesque site.

The operation commenced in May with an intensification day, which saw officers swarm the area to ward off any potential doggers or drug users.

On Tuesday (July 11), the site was installed with CCTV as well as signage indicating the area is being monitored.

In total five cameras patrol the scenic spot and they’ve been strategically placed to maximise coverage.

An additional 15 signs are spread around the area, warning would-be pleasure-seekers to seek their pleasure in a more appropriate location.

Officers are hopeful other types of anti-social behaviour, including fly-tipping, will reduce in the area as a result of the new surveillance technology.

The cameras will not replace the officers, however, with manned patrols undertaken frequently to ensure that nothing of concern is being missed.

Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Nick Evans said: “I am thrilled to see these camera’s installed. We all know the types of awful behaviours that go on at Barrow Wake and it is has gone on for far too long.

“Anti-social behaviour is one of Police and Crime Commissioner Chris Nelson’s top priorities. Installing these camera’s will go towards preventing people continuing to misuse this area and will help to make it feel safer for local residents.”

Acting Inspector for the Cotswolds Neighbourhood Policing Team, Andy Miller said: “Barrow Wake is well known for lewd acts, drug taking and anti-social behaviour. The Neighbourhood team is committed to making the beauty spot a safe and inviting place for everyone to enjoy.

“We will continue to closely monitor the area and deal with any offenders robustly.”
