A POEM A DAY - CRACKLEY DRAGON



Crackley Woods near Kenilworth is one of 11 ancient woodlands in Warwickshire and Staffordshire threatened with tree removal by the HS2 rail building works. A long campaign has been fought to stop this damage and this week a partial reprieve has been won with work partly halted whilst a review into the project is carried out. This is very good news, some woods will remain untouched until Autumn 2020 whilst others will have clearing work continue for site access with a promise not to fell ancient trees. However the danger to these woodlands is still there, the trees can not be replaced or the environment moved and HS2 may yet go ahead and the woods remain in the way.  I am grateful to all the campaigners, camping out in the woods, publicising the case and leading peaceful protests.
