Anti-HS2 graffiti, Crackley Lane
Anti-HS2 graffiti, Crackley Lane
Crackley Lane is crossed by the former Kenilworth-Berkswell railway trackbed, now a public right of way: the Kenilworth Greenway (very popular especially during the pandemic). Slogans sprayed on say "STOP HS2", "STOP ECOCIDE" and "109 ANCIENT WOODLANDS", the number reputed to be destroyed by the line. I can't help feeling that this is an exaggeration, and the 'ancient' is questionable.
Kenilworth Greenway

The Kenilworth Greenway runs, for much of its length, along the route of the dismantled railway between Kenilworth and Berkswell. The former LNWR line was opened 1884, closed 1969.

National cycle route 52 follows the greenway from Kenilworth to Crackley where it becomes route 523 to Burton Green.
