HS2 Jones' Hill Wood Camp Eviction Aylesbury ValeAdd to Lightbox Download
Aylesbury Vale, UK. 1st October, 2020. A National Eviction Team bailiff obstructs the photographer’s camera as a farmer in a telehandler positioned on land not compulsorily purchased by HS2 Ltd asks for clarification as to why a fence is being erected across his field during the eviction of anti-HS2 activists from a wildlife protection camp in ancient woodland at Jones’ Hill Wood alongside the field. Around 40 environmental activists and local residents, some of whom living in makeshift tree houses, 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.
