From a lofty vantage point, he sees a red-coated woman who vanishes minutes later- he notices the theft of thousands of trees from the side of a dale but deals with more local problems, such as the Aidensfield family who were locked out of their home and the burglar who entered isolated farms to leave only a note saying he could have stolen everything. Claude Jeremiah Greengrass reports the theft of two tons of door knockers, while the family of a drowned man refuse to take responsibility for burying him. Bats in a local church, a man who might strangle his wife and another who takes a sentimental journey never to return are all part of Nicks constabulary duties in Aidensfield.
