A Good Walk Spoiled?

Frank Partridge

I wrote this guidebook to the Colne Valley Regional Park in response to the government’s plan to build a high-speed railway (HS2) through an important and carefully nurtured area of green and pleasant countryside, just beyond the north-west London sprawl. The book outlines the key features of the Country Park, following a rambling trail around its many lakes, nature reserves, Site of Special Scientific Interest (Broadwater Lake)  and a magnificent section of the Grand Union Canal, which would all be severely diminished by the construction of HS2.


The guidebook (price £3) is available from the Park Information Centre, or by mail order (price £4) from the author.
