Work has finally begun on building a high-security 12-foot wall along the north Suffolk border to keep out Norfolk migrants.
The multi-million-pound project started at Brandon, close to the railway line which marks the border with Suffolk to the south, and Weeting and the rest of Norfolk to the north.
This spot was chosen because the railway crossing, seen in our exclusive photo, will become Checkpoint Barley – the so-called “neutral zone” where Norfolk bumpkins will be allowed into Suffolk, so long as they have the correct papers.
Suffolk authorities had tried to keep the initial building work a secret to prevent unrest north of the border – but one eagle-eyed Suffolk Gazette reader managed to take these pictures and smuggle them to our offices.
Our photo shows work on the wooden skeleton is well underway, while one sheet of metal is also in place. A worker has left a ladder where he intends to test out the first razor wire.
Norfolk Suffolk border wall
Checkpoint Barley is just down the road and will be heavily guarded once the wall is complete along the whole 80-mile border, which is expected to be in three years.
As previously reported in the Suffolk Gazette, thousands of Norfolk peasants have been trying to move south into Suffolk to escape their hovels, putting incredible pressure on Suffolk resources, and raising fears of inbreeding.
New Suffolk county leader Ronald Trump was elected last year after promising to build the wall, and has now started the work sooner than expected.
A spokesman for his office said: “We can confirm work on the county border wall has started. Soon no-one from Norfolk will get into Suffolk unless we approve it first.
“Of course, people from Suffolk will be free to cross into Norfolk as often as they wish. Perhaps to enjoy a break on the Norfolk Broads, or maybe just to laugh at the weird-looking people there.”
Another photo of the ongoing work shows one of the wall security team busy on his walkie-talkie taking instructions from top brass about suspicious Norfolk people seen nearby.
