Rivers Trust helps restore West Cumbria river to former glory

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

From the Cumbria Crack: "West Cumbria Rivers Trust have completed two river restoration projects in West Cumbria this summer to help improve the quality of the River Marron. At two sites at Ullock and Branthwaite on the River Marron, river bank erosion has been reduced and man-made structures have been removed to help naturalise the river, benefit the river ecology and wildlife, and allow fish, such as Salmon, to thrive. At Ullock, a weir was removed and at Branthwaite Hall, an abutment and buttress were removed to help naturalise the river Marron and enable the free movement of native fish.
