Greathough Brook, Piano Corner

Take A4136 From Drybrook and at Brierley turn right towards the Pludds. Metal barrier is on the left

This site is being looked at as a possible fenced trial area for a beaver family. Beavers here would have a dual use - to undertake coppicing for us and so improve the habitat for a range of species and also to hold more water on the site and so help to reduce the amount of water reaching downstream in times of high rain.

This would not a re-introduction but would be a fenced trial site. Beavers have been used to do this in an experimental fenced area in Devon. Google Devon Beaver Project on the Devon Wildlife Trust website.

Painting and numbering the monitoring posts and taking water samples for invertebrate analysis Bring wellies if you have them
