“out on a limb” page 14 of Beeches, Boreholes and Badgers

20 years ago – out on another limb. Rusland is just 20 miles away as the crow flies from the proposed Moorside site.

Wastwater Chronicles


30th May 1996

I must have spent a fortune on telephone calls and letters to tree experts.  People sound interested in having a look until the L.D.N.P.A are mentioned.  Seem to have rung people all over the country – got some useful information and recommendations.  One recommendation is for a tree expert with experience in veteran trees.  He turns out to live not far away so he and his colleague agree to have a preliminary look for free.  The news is better than I hoped – Roger C and Andy L reckon the majority of the trees are in good nick!

Roger and Andy very generously agree to do a thorough inspection and report for a nominal fee of £200.  Its still a lot for me – for a long shot to try to save 54 beeches owned by bureaucrats.
