Wendover (UK): Jones Hill Woods under attack

News from the StopHS2 Jones Hill Woods protection camp eviction today. This morning at 5:30 am circa 40 National Eviction Team officers, working for HS2 & the government, supported by police, entered the woods. Their intention was to clear the camp to enable mass tree felling. Whilst 2 protestors were removed quickly by excessive force, many more protestors occupy multiple treehouses across the site. This ancient woodland has been a protest camp site for over half a year 6 months & is one of 20 ancient woodlands #HS2 is targeting this month. This woodland represents just one of 108 woodlands that are due to be impacted during Phase 1 construction of HS2. Jones Hill Wood also represents the cultural loss that will be caused by this large scale industrial development.

UK: Save Roald Dahl Woods from HS2

Jones Hill Wood is a small woodland situated between Wendover and Great Missenden. This wood is at the start of the planned Wendover viaduct for HS2. It is also bordered by two family farms under the threat of impending forced evictions.

These families and woods are part of our literary, cultural and social history, inspiring Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox adventures. This is something we should cherish and preserve for future generations.

This inspirational woodland is a key location in the Chilterns HS2 development and we need to come together to save this land and the trees around it!

We need people to come and help form a rota to occupy this woodland or it will be lost forever. We have limited time, the HS2 fence is one field away. We have limited numbers and resource. It’s time to act.

There is a small number of us right now and we are calling out to locals, and concerned humans across the United Kingdom. Come and play your part in helping reverse the decision to press ahead with the colossal mistake that is HS2. Do not leave this to the few!
