Neighbours who spy on me because I’m in a lesbian couple have installed a see-through fence – and people say they’re ‘creepy and vile’

A woman has revealed she’s at the end of her tether following yet another incident with her next-door neighbours.

The anonymous woman took to British parenting site Mumsnet to explain that her and her partner had been constantly harassed by a married couple – and claims she even caught them ‘spying’ on her on one occasion.

The woman claims police had previously discovered ‘illegal’ cameras on their neighbour’s property, and more recently, the couple next door have had the garden fence lowered and added a ‘see-through’ panel.

The woman said the new fence made her feel ‘naked’ and exposed in her garden – and she has a sneaking suspicion the straight couple have a particular interest in her and her partner because they’re a same-sex couple. 

According to the anonymous poster, her partner approached the neighbours to share her concerns over the fence, the wife ‘laughed in her face’ and said her and her husband didn’t ‘care’. Perplexed on the matter, the poster asked fellow Mumsnet users for advice, who branded the neighbours ‘creepy and vile’.

She explained: ‘We are end of terrace and are responsible for the fence to the left of us. Having trouble with the neighbour to the right.

‘Bit of history: We started off alright but then we caught them spying on us (we are a female and female couple and I guess they find us interesting or disagreeable).

‘The police got involved and caught them with cameras illegally set up. There was also evidence they were following us around the street and taking pictures and posting to channels (those pictures eventually reached us).’

The warring neighbours kept their distance from each other for a total of three years, and only rekindled pleasantries after meeting at the funeral of a mutual friend. 

And although relations between the two couples were amicable at first, the new fence has turned them into ‘enemies’ once more. 

She continued: ‘Few days ago, neighbour approached and said he’s having the fence between us changed.

‘It is indeed an old fence that would probably crumble this winter. We asked him how high the new fence is going to be – he answered “as high as the old one”.

‘Today, their fencing worker came with the fence panels and, not only are they much shorter, but they also have a “see-through” top section.

She said the revised fence made her feel 'naked', and served as further evidence the neighbours had a 'very keen interest' in the 'female and female' pair

‘We’ve gone from a two-metre cover to a one-metre cover and feel naked, especially as these are unpleasant and conflictive people with a very keen interest in us.

‘My partner went to talk to them and the wife just laughed in her face and said “haha we don’t care, it doesn’t matter what we said”.

‘So, we are enemies again’.

The poster sought advice on where they stood after their neighbours reneged on the ‘verbal’ promise to install a two-metre fence.

Many people appeared bewildered by the tale, while some encouraged the woman to get petty with the pesky neighbours.

One person advised: ‘I’d let ivy loose on it, it’ll be ruined in a year’.

Feeling sorry for the poster, another added: ‘I am so sorry you have such creepy, vile neighbours’.

Someone else said: ‘Out of pettiness I would look at how much it would cost to get some Harris fencing with raggy blue tarp attached. Then put that down the boundary for as long as you can tolerate it. Their fence will look beautiful with that behind it.’

Another person said: ‘You can’t legally do anything to their fence (pending any fence rules in your deeds) but you can put your own fence on your side.’

Meanwhile someone else recounted their own personal experience with ‘bad’ neighbours: ‘I have massive issues with my neighbours too. Something similar happened with me and I put up 6ft bamboo screening. I got the bamboo screening and folded it in half so it was double the thickness.

‘It meant we couldn’t see each other at all for a long time. It brought me a level of peace I didn’t know existed. But unfortunately after a couple of years it snapped in the wind one particular bad winter.

‘It was different for me because I had paid for the fence so I wasn’t bothered about drilling into it to secure the bamboo. I’m not sure if you’d be able to do that? Having bad neighbours is the worst’.
