Protesters have taken their campaign against plans for a new service station to the door of the company that wants to build it next to junction 35 of the M1 in north Sheffield.
If the plans go ahead it would mean the ancient Smithy Wood next to the M1 is bulldozed to make way for the new services.
Campaigners say the woodland dates back over 800 years, is home to rare species, and could not be replaced by planting trees elsewhere. Today they hand delivered a letter to developers Extra MSA Group.
Oliver Newham, from the Woodland Trust, said: "If you chop it down it can't be recreated elsewhere its a unique habitat."
But Extra MSA Group say the £40 million pound service station is needed to give motorists the chance to rest in line with Government guidelines and would create around 300 new jobs.
