HS2 Jones' Hill Wood Camp Eviction Aylesbury ValeAdd to Lightbox Download
An anti-HS2 tree protector with a smoke grenade climbs onto the arm of a cherry picker being used by National Eviction Team bailiffs working on behalf of HS2 Ltd to dismantle his tree house at a wildlife protection camp in ancient woodland at Jones’ Hill Wood on 1 October 2020 in Aylesbury Vale, United Kingdom. Around 40 environmental activists and local residents, some of whom living in makeshift tree houses 60 feet above the ground, were present during the evictions at Jones’ Hill Wood which had served as one of several protest camps set up along the route of the £106bn HS2 high-speed rail link in order to resist the controversial infrastructure project.
