Campaigners against the Linslade Bypass yesterday (Sunday 23/01/05) set up the first action camp on the route of the proposed bypass. The camp was set up around a tree due to be felled to enable the moving of an oil pipeline prior to the beginning of bypass construction work. A tree house and basic ground camp were built with an onlooking audience of police and Bucks county council officals. Lots of good local support but help is desperatly needed to keep the camp functioning. People who are able to live on site for a couple of days at a time are especially needed.
The camp is right next to the B4032 (Leighton Road) between Linslade and Soulbury, approximately 1 mile west of Linslade (Grid Reference SP 897 262). Its on the north side of the B4032 between Dollar Farm and Valley Farm.
