High Speed Line through the Chilterns - in pictures

A local photographer who lives along the line of the proposed High Speed 2 - has taken over 100 pictures of what might be lost, if construction is given the go-ahead.

Mark Jordan's pictures are now on display - illustrating what's in danger of going - all along HS2 route.

Mark told mix96 what his inspiration for taking the photo was "People in the pub were saying to me 'they can't do this to our countryside, it's an area of outstanding natural beauty'. So I thought.. is it? Let's go and find out!"

Mark added "Being a landscape photographer, I was thinking I can actually go and prove it is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

I've being doing it for a year now, and I've got pylons in the pictures, sheep in the pictures, good days, bad days and all sorts of weather".

And you can see the pictures at the Coach House Gallery, in Great Missenden daily (1100-1800) until Sunday.
