Welcome to the HS2 ‘home’ page. It contains snippets of information with links if further information is available. News is on the left with the most recent at the top ( ). After a couple of useful links, background material is listed on the right by creation date, with the oldest at the top ( ). In all cases, where deeper information is available, links are provided.

Please bear in mind that a lot of work is going on behind the scenes (typically, between LBH, politicians, HS2 and IRA) to temper HS2’s impact on Ickenham residents. We will report significant events and outcomes here.
