Wounded land


I still find it hard to believe that somebody though that cutting a straight wide avenue through the large wooded area of Ham Lands was a good idea and even harder to understand why people who should know better allowed it to happen. The London's Arcadia project has done some good things but they are all more than offset by this single act of wanton destruction.

The wound was very deep and bleak when I first recorded it in December 2007 and the satellite view from June 2008 revealed the full brutality.

Things are slightly better now with the bushes slowly edging their way back towards their friends on the other side of the divide but the wear and tear of the path means that the wound may get better but it will never heal.
