Campaigners in Swamwick may be downhearted about losing the battle over the crematorium plan, but in this picture from the 1980s they appear to be celebrating success.

The placards tell us they were fighting to save fields – perhaps it was a homes plan?

It certainly looks like many villagers were involved in the fight.

Protesters from Swanwick have been fighting the scheme to build a crematorium, but it was given the go ahead after an appeal late last year.
