Wild Horses of Newbury


Magical moment when horses save oak trees in the way of Newbury bypass. Director Mark Carroll and produced by


In January 1996 bailiffs moved to evict protesters who were defending the trees and land scheduled for destruction to build the Newbury Bypass. Amongst the police, security and heavy machinery, an incredible scene unfolded, with a couple of wild horses appearing on the site. This was captured on film by Mark Carroll and became an iconic activist film. It was released by Undercurrents, one of the first indy media outlets to use grassroots video production to tell the stories the corporate media failed to report. 20 years later this is still an important and moving film.
