POND, HOLYBOURNE, HAMPSHIRE
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.
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.
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.
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
article in the Farnham Herald about the project is attached.
