Anti-HS2 activists re-stage Queen Elizabeth I's visit to mark Dews Farm compulsory purchase, Harefield, UKAdd to Lightbox Download
Environmental activists in period costume from groups opposed to the HS2 high-speed rail link, one of which on the other side of the security fence, restage a historical 1602 visit by Queen Elizabeth I to Dews Farm on 31st July 2020 in Harefield, United Kingdom. The activists tried to retrace the steps of Queen Elizabeth I from St Mary’s church to Dews Farm in order to pay their respects to Anne and Ron Ryall, 73 and 72, on the day of their eviction from Dews Farm by HS2 after having spent nine years and their life savings renovating their £1m dream home, but found their path blocked by HS2 fences and security guards.
