The Colne Valley is a beautiful area of West London with a rich mix of wet woodland, streams, lakes and woods, providing habitats for water voles, kingfishers, eels, badgers, bats and countless more. It sits above a chalk aquifer that provides 22% of Londons drinking water. All this is under threat from HS2 as they plan to pile drive into the aquifer and build construction roads and depots all over the place.
This weekend (8th and 9th February) we anticipate tree felling on the Harvil Road and along the side of the Chiltern Railway line. We have forced HS2 to cancel their felling of these trees on at least two occasions. We need to be there to stand for the trees again.
The road closure is in place from "the early hours of Saturday morning", so we will gather in the trees from Friday evening and stand for them.
Location is the roadside camp, Harvil road, 400m south of the Dogs Trust (UB9 6JW).
Bring snacks, camping gear (some spare available), bring love, but most importantly bring yourselves.
