That is a very powerful presentation - possibly worthy of its own topic because otherwise it will be buried in a paragraph in a multi page topic.


I agree Fran, it deserves more prominnce.

. I was planning to send the link to many of my friends, as I think they and I may have become complacent about the havoc and permanent destruction of special parts of this area if HS2 goes ahead. Perhaps I am being over dramatic, but I am sure the instigators of the scheme hope we will all forget about it.

Yes it is,but at the same time its completely relevant to the topic.Maybe a seperate thread to discuss the slideshow and leave it here to.I didnt realise how many beautiful areas are likley to be effected.Its important that the public get some idea of the areas they will loose and will be permanently changed if this High Speed rail goes ahead.Thats exactly what this slideshow has highlighted.

As I've said all the way through since the plans were first published.... the trench (25-30m deep, 50-120m wide) would be an absolute eyesore scarring through the landscape.... it wouldn't be quite so bad if it were along the top of the ridge but as it is along the valley floor it will be visible from everywhere you look.

Yes thats exactly true. it wouldnt matter how much vegetation was put at its boundarie, it would still be visible, when viewed from either side of the valley at higher level.

We received a leaflet today from the HS2 Action Alliance advising of a meeting at the Buryfields Great Missenden Sunday 7th November at 2pm. Even if it rains the meeting will go ahead ( just bring an umbrella).

Parking is available in Great Missenden School Playground.

From the website yestoHS2:

I stand by HS2 is which ever form it takes


That seems like a bit of a daft statement.Kind of negates all the reasoning behind this websites's justification of why HS2 should go ahead.
