News Update
Bilston Anti Bypass Camp - Edinburgh

After a cold & snowy winter Bilston Wood is coming to life again. The trees are starting to bud, snowdrops are sprouting all around and the crawly things seem to be awakening.

Having just had a massive spring clean of our surroundings, site and paths we've now erected a large kitchen/ free café with an infoshop attached. Our stage is built, and after an initial performance by the "Beltane Drummers" from Edinburgh we now hope to host more local bands and musicians. There are two new treehouses in progress and our walkway system is ever extending

We would welcome vistors to come for short or long stays, or even just to pop by for a cup of tea and a read.

Our wishlist is too long to print but mainly at the moment we need 10mm polyprop, all and any inner tubes (these are desperately required!) and all forms of "defensive" materials.

We would also welcome any literature that may be suitable for the infoshop (Anarchist releases, Earth First essays, protest flyers etc etc).

For more information &/or directions please call the site mobile : 07986 632429
