'Nine Miles' describes the fight against the Newbury bypass and other road protests of the British Isles in the mid nineteen nineties.  It was a fight characterised by extreme cold, fire and community, cider, drugs and living simply in the woods.  It was a fight to preserve our natural inheritance, to make the case for sustainable transport in the face of powerful vested interests and, in a wider sense, to stand up for the earth herself at a time when - as now - our lifestyles were often grossly out of balance with the natural order of things.  'Nine Miles' is a tribute to those days.
