The Battle of the Newbury Bypass

Loading the player...

The story of the 1996 battle to stop the building of the Newbury Bypass, when over 7,000 people resisted the construction of a highway overpass, leading to some of the biggest anti-road protests in Europe’s history. Created from hundreds of hours of footage, as well as contemporary interviews, it has been distilled into an evocative and historic film. A defining account that shines a light on the people whose actions ultimately blocked a government road building programme.

A documentary by Jamie Lowe.
