Restoration Work at The Mill Brook is Almost Complete

unnamed - Copy (2)

Having just walked across to the Mill Brook and been sufficiently lucky to dodge the spring showers, I can confirm that the restoration work is almost complete.

The bank has been lowered on the south side of the stream and a series of scrapes has been created which will hold water during periods of flooding.

The next step will see the damming of the Brook in two places.

This will encourage water to spread out and flow through the newly created wetland.

Finally, landscaping will see the banks of excavated spoil being

(a) compacted and

(b) levelled before being planted with wildflower seed.

Enjoy the images ....
