I know the country is the same physical size now as it was 1000yrs ago.

I mean the infrastructure is expanding

The amount of houses is expanding and the population is expanding.

To meet them needs the country needs new bypasses and land for building etc.

And now hs2..

More countryside lost forever

Yep. There’s work going on everywhere round by us now. A few places we have gone for a wander the last few seasons are full of machinery and workers now digging the place up. Shame really but the way the worlds changing I suppose it was inevitable it would go ahead. Well they’ve already started, didn’t think they would have done all they have to now change there minds

It's actually gotten smaller than it was a 1000yrs ago - not by much in the grand scheme but, the sea has taken some fair chunks off the east coast.

 

Have a look at 'Doggerland' to see some land loss from a little further back.

That's interesting! Valid questions though....

I'd think a tunnel would make more sense.
