Farmers affected by HS2 are being given the chance to visit the HS1 route in Kent and speak to farmers whose land was affected by the creation of the railway line.

The National Farmers Union is offering the visit, which will take place on Wednesday (June 4), to their members.

County adviser Annie Vernon said: “HS2 is going to cause great challenges for the farming community along the route, and one of the huge strengths of the NFU is that it’s a national organisation which can draw on the experiences of farmers elsewhere in the country who have suffered under similar schemes.
