It doesn't quite look like spider webs, and it covers a massive area.

"The downward path of the web is evident in that the lamp posts have it on the top and it has draged down with the weight of the blanket until settling with any raised plants being covered from the top down .Deffinatly not cobwebs as the area covered is around 10,000sqmtrs and can be followed across fields in a SW direction for miles ."

It's probably the work of a species of, tent caterpillar

Some similar pictures and an explanation on this BBC Nature web page:

No chemtrails involved. Laughing

Yeah looks like tent caterpillar or something similar.

When I was very young one year we had a tent caterpillar infestation in Pittsburg. They ate ALL the foliage for miles. Every tree and bush was just lousy with nests. They were so thick on the ground you couldnt walk without squishing them - and they had GREEN BLOOD. I HATE those f---ing things!

Sorry - - carry on.
