Thanks again for all your advice - I do appreciate it.
However nice and amenable you try to be, if someone is unwilling to listen or look at something from someone else's point of view, you are in effect a bit b***ered.
Whilst I am steering clear of "that" side of my garden at present, my Yucca ( transported from France) has thrown up a flower spike after 4 years which is wonderful. The Grass Snake has reappeared after several months absence and is happily ensconced ( with a large slug for company ! ) in his shelter against my south stone wall.
My neighbours continue to bitch and snipe but the noise from the Starlings feasting on my Figs can sometimes drown them out. Plus, oddly enough, I have become very deaf in one ear.
The next hurdle will be when I come to replace my fence which wasn't too hot on my arrival 4 years ago - neighbour would prefer me not to do it as it reduces their view.
Just for a bit of light relief, I looked at the Right of Way thread today........maybe my problem is not that bad after all
