encompassing the following
This project is one of four sites delivered through the Defra Catchment Restoration Fund.
A total of 100 m of river corridor was improved.
Throughout the site toe boarding was removed and the bank renaturalised to create marginal habitat. A low flow channel was created using faggot bundles and coir rolls with the new banks planted up by local volunteers.
Large Woody Material (LWM) was installed to further increase flow diversity.
A number of bat hotels and bird boxes were installed in the surrounding green space with volunteers.
