Protesters gathered for a walk around a country park which is set to be devastated if the HS2 project goes ahead.

They went along to Denham Country Park yesterday (Sunday) to show their feelings about the controversial line.

The campaigners - including members of the anti-HS2 groups from Hillingdon borough, such as Doreen McIntyre of Harefield Against HS2, were joined by Bucks County Council leader Martin Tett, Stop HS2 campaign group leader Joe Rukin, and actor Robert Lindsay, who lives in Denham.

The walk took in areas of the park through which the line is set to run, and lasted for five miles.

Some of the anti-HS2 protesters pause to listen to a speech at Widewater Lock on the edge of Harefield during a protest walk in Denham Country Park.
 

Organiser Frank Partridge said: “It was a really good turnout considering the weather, and it was great to hear from our speakers.

“We have done the walk for the last couple of years and this year we did a different route to show off other parts of the area which will be affected.

“It is a good way of showing exactly HS2 will affect this area.”
