replace 1. The woods were all replaced by two schools, which were linked to the village by a new road. In fact, the piece of land was for woods. Then they were removed. Finally two schools were built in the same area. So, is sentence 1 right? Does sentence 2 mean the same thing? 2. A road ran south from the village to two schools, which covered the land for woods in older times.

Hello, In the first sentence the land was originally woodland/woods, all of the woods were cleared so that schools could be built. So now there is no woodland at all, only two schools. Sentence 2 could mean the same but you need to change it a little, "A road ran south from the village to two schools, built on land which was covered by woods in older times." Hope this helps Bob
