HS2 - The Effect on The Colne Valley

High Speed 2 will dissect the Colne Valley Regional Park with a 3.4km viaduct, 12 construction compounds, 2 worker accommodation sites, 2 tunnel portals, 5 electricity  stations… etc. The Colne Valley Park CIC is petitioning against the HS2 hybrid bill to reduce, and mitigate/compensate for, the impacts on the Colne Valley Park.

 

Three of our circular walks through the Colne Valley will be seriously affected by HS2 if you would like to walk them before they are disrupted the instructions can be found at:

Circular walks 

Numbers 6,7 and 8 are the ones that will be affected. Click here for Circular walks.

 

Denham against HS2 have also produced a guided walk booklet entitled “A Good Walk Spoiled” which is available at the Colne Valley Park Visitor Centre for £2.50.
