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.

Please watch Erin Brockovich on Netflix asap if you haven’t already. It highlights serious issues with a certain water supply that we are about to experience in 22% of Londons water supply. A recent Freedom of Information request by Sarah Green has exposed that Chromium 6 is apparent in pile drives into our aquifers which they have began just this month. Code Red Alert and media silence. Watch the film!!

Cofferdams in the lakes are showing it already from the concrete plugs already in, legal limit is in the uk 0.05 in drinking water approx in Europe 0.02 America 1. In this lake with cofferdams it’s 45!!!!! We need help.

HS2 are not using Cr(VI) they have been surprised to find such high levels across so many of their sites. They think it is being generated as concrete is drying. The levels in the cofferdams were from the concrete plugs curing. The whole of the Colne Valley Viaduct is across drinking water protected zones. Next HS2 step is the giant concrete pour into 300 deep holes in the aquifer for the Viaduct foundations. This has potential to poison thousands of peoples water.
