This blog will follow the proposed route designed for the new High Speed Railway from London to Birmingham, and will document and investigate the people and places that will be directly affected by the multi billion pound project. Through the use of photography I will capture the landscape and understand what it will mean to the people and their surrounding areas if they are altered forever. Some people are going to have their community’s destroyed, homes demolished and businesses uprooted; and I want to try to understand if this railway is really worth it and whether there are more logical alternatives. I will start in London and make my way along the route to Birmingham visiting as many destinations as possible to gain a greater understanding.
