Perry Hay Brook - Water Project

Grid Ref SO 6209 1187

 

It was a very wet day out at Perry Hay Brook which is appropriate for the Water Project! Our task was to insert Willow cuttings along the edge of the brook.

 

This shows the width of the flooded brook and it is looking quite muddy which was caused by the heavy rain washing dirt into it. It used to be a large stagnant pond.

It is flowing through a new large pipe underneath Spruce Ride.

Further upstream these large logs were used to stem the flow.

Our ranger is about to get his feet very wet!
