Restoration on the Lark at Bell Meadow

Our in-river trained team of volunteers and Bell Meadows residents went to work on their stretch of the river in December (pictured) and residents in Fornham worked on the river opposite the golf club in February. Rob Mungoven from the Wild Trout Trust, Rob Clapham of the Environment Agency and RLCP’s volunteer restoration co-ordinator Glenn Smithson led work in the river to restore the flow and gravel beds to allow the trout and other fish to live there. The work will also help to move silt downstream as the woody material strategically placed, narrows the channel and helps the water run faster.
