Red Beck and Heaton Woods

Red Beck, Heaton Woods

We take nature for granted. Red Beck and this bit of woodland is 5 minutes’ walk from my front door. Fortunately, it’s managed by the Heaton Woods Trust. I can walk here any time I like, and it costs me nothing. Just as things should be. If some people had their way, it would be offices or houses. What some people seem to forget is that we need places like this to stay happy. Don’t build an extension or a granny flat in your garden. Don’t pave it over. Keep it green. I’m not a tree-hugger, I’m a Pragmatist. If we destroy our natural environment, we’ll be miserable. It’s happening already. Wake up.
