Beanfield has been written to highlight an often-forgotten event that occurred twenty-five years ago in the South West. On the 1st June 1985, a convoy of several hundred new-age travellers was attacked by riot police as they made their way to Stonehenge for the 14th annual Stonehenge free festival. Vehicles were destroyed, dogs put down and many people were seriously wounded as police pursued those attempting to escape across the Beanfield. Seen through the lense of a love story between Steamer, a veteran of the convoy, and Annie, the well-to-do daughter of a newspaper editor, and taking in an array of characters from policemen to English Heritage committee members, Beanfield tells an epic story with a lightness of touch.
