The gypsies are leaving their hundred year old settlement on Hurtwood Hill in Surrey

The gypsies are leaving their hundred year old settlement on Hurtwood Hill in Surrey . They lived in huts, caravans and benders ( huts with branches bent over and covered with sacks ) - but now they are forsaking their picturesque homes and many of them are moving into corrugated iron bungalows at West Walton provided by the Surrey Council as alternative accomodation .
In their new homes, the gypsies will discard their Romany customs and follow the ways of civilisation .
