20 miles away from ‘The Sellafield Repository’ and 20 years ago…

26th January 1996

February 2nd

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.
