Latest news update (23 January 2020):
MSA Extra have withdrawn their application to develop a major motorway service area on Smithy Wood, a semi-natural ancient woodland and Local Wildlife Site near J35 of the M1.
This is fantastic news for the campaign – but it is not the end. For Smithy Wood to be saved, we now ask the landowner St Pauls to work with us so we can secure the woodland for future generations to enjoy. Click here to read our news update about this.
You can help support our work to save special places for nature like Smithy Wood by making a donation to our Campaign Fund.
