'Slowing the Flow' - Work has started on the Mill Brook

The Environment Agency has started work on the flood defence project which will 'slow the flow' of the Mill Brook.

This project will see over 1 hectare of agricultural land taken out of production and ultimately replaced by new wetland habitat, including reedbed and a series of retention ponds.

The Mill Brook will follow a series of new courses and will flow across this whole area reducing pressure on the Mill Pond at times of peak flow.

This, in turn, will reduce the flood risk adjacent to the Barbour Institute.

This work follows a successful working partnership between the Environment Agency, Tattenhall Wildlife Group, the Bolesworth Esate and farmer James Harrison (Woodlake Farm) who has released the land.

Work will take place over the next four weeks and we will keep you updated on progress.
