Orford Farm on School Road, Orford, where the fetish sex club is being run

First published in News by , Reporter

A FETISH sex club is being run next to a primary school in Orford with afternoon parties hosted by a dominatrix.

That is the secret of Orford Farm on School Road where walls hide the fetish venue complete with specialist rooms including a dungeon, pigsty and head teacher’s study.

Neighbours reacted angrily on Monday when leaflets were posted through their doors advertising an open day for the farm on Saturday.

It invited interested parties to view the facilities which also include a medical room and a school room.

St Margaret’s Primary School, which is also on School Road, will be hosting its Christmas fair on the same day.

Councillors have joined residents in voicing their anger at the fetish club.

Orford councillor Mike Hannon said: “I’m disgusted and appalled by it.”

Colleague Clr Kate Hannon agreed and said: “We are totally opposed to this. It is completely unacceptable when there are school children walking around.”

Clr Kelly Simcock added: “People are entitled to their interests but there are boundaries.

“Neighbours have every right to be upset.”

Residents who live in Primrose Close, which is immediately next to the fetish club, say they are ‘appalled’ by the nature of the club which, according to an associated website, offers bondage and sado-masochistic parties and ‘one to one fetish meetings’ in the ‘old barn’.

It can also be hired as a venue by a professional dominatrix.

The website also advertises an ‘interactive kinky party’ to be held at some time in December between 3pm and 5pm – meaning it could be at the same time children will be walking home from school. A New Year’s Eve ‘BDSM’ event has also been organised at the barn.

Mum-of-two Debbie Gleave lives on Primrose Close and her garden backs on to the farm.

She said: “We have complained to the council so many times because we can hear the sounds of screaming and whipping coming from the barn.

“My children come inside and say ‘what’s that noise’. They are petrified to go into the garden.”

Peter Orford who has lived on School Road for 77 years said: “I’ve got happy memories of that farm. I used to play in the barn as a child. It really upsets me to see what it is being used for.”

Parties at the barn are advertised online as having ticket or tribute prices ranging from £15 to £80, with rooms also available for hire and photography sessions.

According to the council, the farmhouse and barn is listed as a residential property not a business.

Val Atherton, from the council’s licensing team, said: “They are not doing anything licensable but we are keeping an eye on it.”

Police Insp Andy Ross said: “We are satisfied that nothing criminal is going on.”

A spokesman for the barn said: “We did not put those leaflets through doors neighbouring homes. We are open to discussing any concerns with residents.”

firstly, a fetish club doesn't neccesarily means sex. Folk in the area have known about this place for years hence the council stance and the police known there is nothing criminal occurring. Its seems that someone is being very malicious, because why is it now a problem.

whatever goes on behind closed doors is private and not any bizz of mine. live and let live, and as long as no offences are being committed, who are we to criticise other peoples sexual preferences. it becomes a problem when noises and obscene behaviour outside the building are observed.
and yes i live nearby it.
nimby attitudes as always.....(Not In My BackYard)

I Knew that when the old man from the farm died some years ago things would change at the farm but didnt know by how much, at least i know how they are paying for the renovations now. It also may raise the property prices (Sarcasm). The thing that bothers me is that when they have the once a month 'parties' which have been going on for more than a year; School road along with some other surrounding roads are well blocked up with cars and i find I cannot park out side my own place when this is on.
But Congratulations on renovating a listed building and keeping the real upgrades on the inside....lol hmmm £15 a time eh....

What like minded people do behind closed doors is not Illegal or wrong.
So all these people complaing that live in the area near this club and near the school dont have sex with their partners becouse they live near a school and i bet these kids have or will be been woken up at some point by there parents doing what couples do behind there own closed doors. And i can bet they all take a lot of care as not to offend people when they are comming and going from ths place. One last thing I AM NOT a member of the club and i am in NO WAY connected to the club. I have lived in the area for a while and had no idea that this club was open at the farm.

live and let live is my motto too..... but when teenagers are to frightened to walk past this site on their way home due to the noises and costumes being worn outside on the lawn, then it has become a serious issue.What's next?
