20 years ago – a Beech Party to save 50 trees the Lake District National Park wanted to fell as “dangerous.” Shame the National Park aren’t so keen on safety when it comes to new nuclear on the River Ehen floodplain near Sellafield (Just 20 miles away from the Rusland Beeches as the crow flies!) Mind blowing that the National Park are actively supporting the diabolic Moorside plan.
22nd Sept 1996
The banners were made by different people and left up after everyone had gone home. There were people who had travelled from as far away as Carlisle to support the trees.
Visitors to the Beech Party who didn’t have to travel far where Tony Wood’s saddleback pigs from Abbots Reading Farm. The four saddlebacks were having a great time eating the beech mast.
