Local Support For Roswell Pit As Wildlife Haven
IN reply to the letter from Alison Arnold (Ely Standard, May 7), I have to say that sadly, Alison, if you agree with E Holden s view that if you are under 80 years-old you don t deserve to have an opinion, you have just talked yourself out of an argument.

Joking apart, I agree that J Tyrell took a gamble buying the pit from the Thomas Parson's charity. But since more than 1,500 local households, the Wildlife Trust, RSPB, Ely Sailing Club and Natural England campaigned for the protection of the pit, East Cambs District Council has blocked the development of a marina and J Tyrell may or may not see a return on his money. That is none of my concern.
It is dangerous and rather na�ve to take a small pit in Ely which, after 200 years, has become an established and nationally valuable haven to rare wildlife and compare it to the entire Norfolk Broads.
