The Countryside We Could Lose

The proposed expansion of the Warth Park industrial estate in Raunds would permanently deface the countryside and rural scenery previously enjoyed by generations of Raunds and Stanwick residents.  Meadow Lane and the grassy area at the end of the lane towards Stanwick Lakes date back to medieval times, the lane itself was used as a route from Raunds to the surrounding villages.  These ancient road and green space between Raunds and Stanwick Lakes could be lost to tarmac parking spaces and metal distribution centres.
