UPDATED Monday 24th: Chainsaws coming for Broadwells Ancient Woodland

HS2 chainsaws are coming for Broadwells Ancient Woodland!

In the last week HS2 Ltd have been stepping up their work in the ancient woodlands surrounding Kenilworth, with action being taken to prevent birds from nesting, which we see as a clear indication that they intend to start felling ancient woodland soon.

On monday 24th Febrauary HS2 Ltd will be closing Cryfield Grange Road where Camp Crackley is located, from 9.30 - 3.30 for a week to extend road access to their compound. We do not see how they can do this without cutting down trees in a designated ancient woodland. It is also the case that they are fencing off another ancient woodland nearby, Braodwells Wood.


Bring a buddy and meet at Crackley Woods Camp for briefing for the days action.

In addition to the immediate action we plan to start a new camp and stand for the trees but need rebels to help. 

If you can spare a day or two to get camp started and help with a rota to keep it going. Together we can save the trees. 

Broadwells is close to existing Crackley Camp 20 mins walk.
