Right now, the biggest single threat from development to ancient woodland is the HS2 rail project. Up and down the country ancient woods and trees face the axe to make way for the high speed train line. Currently 108 ancient woods are threatened with loss or damage from both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the project.
The Woodland Trust and the artists Harriet and Rob Fraser of somewhere-nowhere.com would like to invite you to join us in a visit to The Archive of Lost Woods – a unique outdoor art installation in a secret woodland location in Warwickshire on Saturday 14th September between 2 and 4pm.
The artwork will mark the forthcoming loss of ancient woodland to the HS2 High Speed rail project. It will combine poetry, art, nature, conversation and exploration. The Archive of Lost Woods will exist for one day only.
Every person who visits will receive a special limited edition artwork produced by Harriet and Rob Fraser.
Places are very limited. If you would like to be part of this unique occasion please register your interest by booking a free ticket using the booking system below. Please note this ticket is a request to attend only and final places will be confirmed by Monday September 9th and at that stage an entry invitation containing full details will follow should you be successful.
For those who do attend on the day, transport can be provided from and to a nearby station.
