HS2 Resume Tree Felling At Jones Hill Wood WendoverAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Wendover, UK. 28th April, 2021. Ancient woodland at Jones Hill Wood is viewed across a field containing saplings planted by contractors working on behalf of HS2 Ltd as mitigation for environmental destruction caused by the HS2 high-speed rail link. Felling of Jones Hill Wood, which contains resting places and/or breeding sites for pipistrelle, barbastelle, noctule, brown long-eared and natterer’s bats and is said to have inspired Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox, has recommenced after a High Court judge yesterday refused permission to environmental campaigner Mark Keir to apply for judicial review and lifted an injunction previously imposed to prevent further felling pending legal action.
