Yet more destruction of our country side today, as I discovered when I went for a dinner time stroll around the green areas of Tunstall.
My trip took me down the fields running between Reginald Mitchell Way and Hollywall lane, and spotting some smoke down by Harecastle Tunnel (tunstall end) I went to havea look.
It was devestaing to discover the tree felling last year in Bathpool Park, and just like then it was also devistating to see an area as historically important and a beauty spot that brings thousands of tourists each year blighted by the logging that has taken place.
A strip running from Reginald Mitchell Way, between the railway lines and Goldendale pool and the canal, continues all the way past Harecastle tunnel has been logged, with the leaves and branches being burnt off behind the houses by the Tunnel.
Maybe this is private land, but the amount of devestation, in an area that has already seen a lot of it's natural features built on has been completley devestated, ruined, wiped out.
There aren't enough trees and habitat for wildlife as it is without this happening.
