Where these channels end, the water enters old streams and they simply can't cope with the increased volumes of water often resulting in large erosion issues. This is one of the reasons why we have put so much effort into protecting stream banks with our wooden bundles made from harvested willow from the LNR. These fill up with silt and work brilliantly.
|These bundles were done several years ago and saved a huge erosion point from getting worse.|
|This was back in November 2014|
As a final word of caution, if you are visiting the LNR, bring your wellies (and a buoyancy aid).
