TYPICAL PROJECT - Click on image to enlarge

BAKER'S POND, HOLYBOURNE, HAMPSHIRE

On this site we planted a double line of 350 metres of mixed native hedgerow species just outside Alton in Hampshire, at the edge of a trading estate.

Volunteer groups have restored an old millpond ; new paths with a small bridge have been created around the area to allow disabled access for coarse fishing.

Around 400 trees have also been planted. The restoration work to date has resulted in a huge improvement in the variety of wildlife present, including nesting pairs of kingfishers, and occasional visits by otters.

Further work is being carried out by volunteer groups to open paths along the River Wey, and provide a green link through the town; this work is part of a project to regenerate a run-down industrial estate complex.

An article in the Farnham Herald about the project is attached.
