Farmers have been meeting in Staffordshire to voice their anger over the impact of the planned high speed rail route - HS2.
They say some farms will be destroyed by the line as well as woodlands and beautiful scenery.
There's concern too from the Staffordshire County Showground, which will be sliced in two by the railway.
