Updated with current maps! Stand for the Colne Valley

Image may contain: tree, plant, sky, outdoor, nature and water

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.

From livestream today Friday 15th (please someone add location and time stamp)
Evidence at 9m 55s in video of crane activity - large, loose metal items being lowered from tower demolition (NET don't have demolition licence?) to this road that is only closed one way - if these items fell they could easily bounce into a windscreen or window on the drivers side and would certainly cause cars to crash, vehicles appear to be travelling at higher speeds and closer together than could be considered 'controlled'. Also HS2 and Police are within the 'fall range' area, against H&S limits. Public are only a few feet away as well. fb.watch/8F6UV5o-ub/
