20 miles away from ‘The Sellafield Repository’ and 20 years ago…
26th January 1996
There is a report in the Westmorland Gazette that 15 of the Rusland Beeches ‘need’ to be felled. There is a bit of snow on the ground it always snows on Dad’s birthday.
Another newspaper report and letter about ‘sadness of ‘losing’ the beeches – is no one going to say anything? The lake District National Park Authority were given the beeches – over 100 of them in 1976 – and have been whittling away at them ever since.
