The Beetley Bra

(The photos can be enlarged, by clicking on them)

Last Sunday, I noticed this strange object dangling from a tree branch, over at Hoe Rough. On closer inspection, it turned out to be a bra. A blue one, as you can see, including some substantial padding. It was still there the next day, and had become something of a talking point for the dog walkers who frequent the area. Everyone was speculating how it had got there, who might have discarded it, and why they had not taken it home with them. The most popular theory concerned some possible open-air sexual activity in the small dell below the tree. This is where I usually take a short break on my walk, and as it is very close to the main path, the risk of discovery would be high, should you be indulging in something of that sort.

It is therefore safe to assume that this probably happened at night, when the whole area is in pitch darkness. Perhaps the lovers took a torch along, or used some form of light from a mobile phone. It could be that their ardour was so powerful, they were prepared to risk the dangers of the unlit night. We are never likely to know. I resolved to photograph this bra, if it was still in situ today. As you can see, it is in very good condition, and still has a lot of use left in it.

Hopefully, the person who abandoned it will see this post, and return to claim the undergarment.

  1. Awesome post, and now I know the rest of the story or perhaps just the beginning as my thoughts will ponder over the situation which caused this lovely blue padded bra to be hanging effortlessly from the tree branch… grinning … Take care, Laura

  2. Wouldn’t it be somewhat ironic if a pair of tits used it as a nest and had lots of little titlings? Quite amazing what people get up to? It’s also interesting that, for the most, it has been met with curiosity and good humour; I’m wondering what kind of reactions a pair of whiffy, slightly soiled underpants would have generated? Have a great day everybody and keep on blogging Pete – just read your memoir of good old London Town, makes me think that I was right and your time in London is a book (at least), possibly a radio four play (no pun intended) or maybe a cathartic experience just to get it down on paper. Soon be in Norfolk by the way, maybe mid to end of May.

    1. Thanks, Gary. Nesting tits would be fabulous. That would get me ‘viral’!
      Your kind comment about the non-fiction piece is much appreciated.
      Good luck with the move.
      Best wishes, Pete.


      1. A bra in a tree is always cause for excitement anywhere. πŸ™‚ Feel free to adopt the term rooting as your own. It’s going to take off any second now in England. πŸ™‚ Sadly I think Aussie vernacular is disappearing even here.

  3. Bra-vo on the post Pete. Glad your keeping us ‘abreast’ with the goings on in your neck of the woods. An uplifting story of passion in the dark. It was probably a dare by some young girl egged on by a couple of mates after polishing off a bottle of Lambrusco. :0)

  4. Pete, as I was sharing your post on Facebook, the corrector insisted that I might have meant brain rather than bra in…. Well, perhaps somebody has lost the brain there too… πŸ˜‰

    1. That’s interesting, Robert. We are a long way from any ski slopes, but I now have a vision of young women performing a ‘chair-lift right of passage’, by flinging off bras as they make their way to the piste!
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. I actually think that is the idea, the “right of passage” ceremony. It’s probably the snowboarders, they’re an unstable lot. I’m not ever going to complain of bra-flinging! but on a ski mountain, I personally wear every layer of insulation I can and keep everything, I mean everything, zipped! πŸ™‚
        This is fun news from your neck of the woods, an interesting little mystery, thanks for sharing and good to get it off your chest. πŸ™‚

    1. A kite’s tail? That would be one theory, John, if I hadn’t been able to inspect it so closely. It is definitely a bra though. It has fasteners, straps, and a label with washing instructions.
      Mind you, kites are popular around here. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Over here in the States we occasionally find strange things also … men’s sneakers draped by their tied laces over telephone wires … panties and men’s brief undershorts in the middle of streets and in parks … It is a relatively benign and common occurrence here as well …

    1. This follows something of a tradition on my blog. I have posted about a fluffy dressing gown, then some sheepskin bootees, and now an abandoned bra. I reckon that each of those is a blogging one off! πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. I love these kinds of pictures…here in the US, kids routinely take a pair of tennis shoes, ties the laces together, and fling the pair over electrical wires…if it works, the shoes dangle there…stupid, pointless, somewhat dangerous, and ingrained in our society…perhaps Beetley has the same thing, just with bras!

  6. I suggest two possible courses of action: (1) Contact the owner of the bra, get the story, and petition the government to designate this as a national landmark: Memorial to Virginity Lost, or (2) Inform the rough hoes in the area around Hoe Rough that they need to be a little more discreet in the practice of that old profession of theirs.

    1. I hope to go with option one, as soon as the owner contacts me, David.
      It is the Easter holiday for schools at the moment, so your theory may well be correct.

      I think those ladies concerned in option two are generally to be found closer to the city of Norwich, despite the name of this local nature reserve. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.
