Guided site visits
The RRC can offer guided tours to a number of restoration sites, either as part of your membership package, or at an additional cost. During these the Centre staff will explain the techniques used on site and demonstrate lessons that can be learnt.

  • River Skerne, Haughton-le-Skerne, Darlington.  1995 river restoration project and the associated development of this semi urban site.

If you are interested in attending a site visit to a particular type of catchment or restoration site please contact us.
This visit was to the Carshalton arm of the River Wandle which has in the past been overwide, impounded and contaminated. It is now in much better condition thanks to this project.
