Should we assume that in their plans to "reveal" the Aqueduct they intend destroying a large number of mature trees from the area around and below said feature?
Hope so clear them out  .open up the site .

And judging by the number of trees down or being felled/trimmed as they are unsafe on the way down to Brabyns Park from the canal, it is high time some of them were thinned out anyway.

A small price to pay, IMO, in return for giving people a view of this magnificent piece of Georgian architecture and civil engineering.  Let's show a bit of civic pride and try to avoid being negative!
