Across the UK, Britain's green, picturesque land is facing uncertainty after the arrival of fracking. The specter of gas wells and drilling sites, articulated trucks, waste lagoons, and other fracking detritus hangs heavy in a land more typically associated with small scale farming, cricket on the green, and "cottage" industries.

The video is hosted on YouTube.
