I live in a town called Bury, north of Manchester in England. It’s a rather peaceful town, not much happens. We are all normal people with normal lives, so this event was so strange that I HAD to share it somewhere.
This happened about 2 weeks ago, it was a normal day. I was meeting with some of my best friends and we were going to Dow Lane, a popular park in town, it’s not much – just a long greenery with trees and a footpath to one side with a wooden fence next to it protecting a private reserve. I’m not saying I cared much for that fence, but when we reached Dow Lane we noticed some graffiti tags had defaced the entire thing. It was a simple but sinister face, one large circle with two small circles for eyes and a cross for a mouth painted with black and blue spray paint, sometimes the faces were accompanied by the letters ‘BH’.
At first me and my friends didn’t take note of the tag, it could be a bunch of kids with spray paint being ‘artistic’ again, which was not an unheard of thing locally speaking. However as we followed the path further along towards the stream at the end, we saw the tag more often, on the fence again, on an old burned park bench behind the line of trees that hid it from the play area and faded but visible on the gravel path itself; at this point we knew something was interesting here. Somebody had gone to all that effort for a simple (ugly) tag.
