Set in an historical and political framework, the book records the machinations and intrigue which led to one of England's most heavily protected landscapes, less than a mile from the heart of England's ancient capital, being destroyed for the construction of the M3 Motorway. The heritage and ecological importance of the site is fully explained, providing a comprehensive and informative record. The text is well illustrated with photographs and sketches before, during and after the final destruction, with plans and other material vividly illustrating the history and archaeology of Twyford Down and the extensive and highly profiled and reported campaign to save the Down. The corruption of the process of motorway planning is examined from the time of the Government's decision to abandon the logical corridor to the west of the City to the eccentric decision to route the motorway to the east through Twyford Down. Twyford Down chronicles the gradual transition of a three-man campaign in 1985 to the birth of national environmental campaigning, culminating in the Government's subsequent abandonment of similar proposals in Oxleas Wood and the Devil's Punchbowl.

Product Description:

The Twyford Down story is set in a political and historical framework in order to examine the key issues affecting road planning and environmental protection.

From the Back Cover:

This is the extraordinary saga of the eight year campaign to prevent the destruction of Twyford Down, then the undistributed landscape backcloth to the ancient City of Winchester. The story is told by Barbara Bryant who was at the forefront of the campaign from its modest beginnings in 1985 to its infamous culmination seven years later. Twyford Down is a compelling record of every step of the campaign. It examines the UK government's role in the destruction of the Down, firstly by proposing to complete the 'missing' link in the M3 via the cutting in Twyford Down and subsequently by its intransigence in rejecting alternative solutions. It also looks at the part the campaign has subsequently played in the evolution of environmental campaigning. European legislation, which failed to protect this precious piece of English countryside, is examined, as is the political background to the campaign. The campaign for Twyford Down was lost with the construction of the final section of the M3 motorway through Twyford Down. The campaign, and the issues it raised, are not likely to be forgotten - the gaping wound in the landscape will remain as a monument to the great car economy of the second half of the 20th century.
