SP2974 : HS2 works fence

HS2 works fence
HS2 works fence
On the edge of Crackley Wood.

The area beyond was subject to illegal tree felling during the bat and bird breeding season in 2020 under the cover of the COVID-19 lockdown, despite the best efforts of environmental protectors who occupied part of the site.

Note the wording of the red sign. "The land is in possession of HS2" As I understand it the land has been compulsory "purchased" without actually paying the owner. That will only happen "upon completion" whenever that might be.
