The siege began in the fall with the renovation at the Davis School. Initially, there was an increase in noise and general truck traffic. As the school year finished up, a second wave of isolation began at full force. First came the increased fencing of walking paths, and then the cement trucks. The final death knell for West Bedford was the commencement of paving on all supply roads to the area.
In a frantic act of desperation, a local West Bedfordite sent a message in a bottle down the Concord River which was picked up downstream at the boat launch.
Since access to the area is limited, officials are considering an airdrop of much-needed supplies.
