They slam car doors and endlessly get in and out.
    WHAT ARE THEY DOING HERE?

    Also not one but two refer trucks just turned up. I need earplugs.
    Dogging?

    Well I wondered if it was something like that. They are not kids and look well turned out, cars are up to five years old. No actual shouting or loud music. But why here? Although a dead end, the companies run pretty much 24/7 in shifts during the week. There's often a couple of people in the street even at two in the morning. There are through roads that have less traffic than this one.
    Bemused.

    It's an option, but you know how it is. Stealth.

    Don't really know if it's for here or the wombling thread but I stopped by Aldi, recognised the bloke on checkout from a ratty minibus nearby, and paid 2.64 for two thermal t shirts and a packet of naan

    Successful businesspeople like myself know the importance of effective networking.

    Oh I also found (but didn't meet) another unofficial neighbour - went for a stroll and following a line of wildish raspberries escaped from the allotments I found a shack, and its 'toilet'. Doesn't seem like whoever lives there is thriving.

    Oh that reminds me it looks like somebody is living in the bushes by the canal, where the tent was.
