You may recently have spotted a large digger on the Reserve. This heralds the implementation
of the last of three wetland restoration / flood relief projects, in a joint venture with the Environment Agency, Telford & Wrekin Council and Shropshire Wildlife Trust. The aim is to introduce a wetland environment by scraping approximately 0.5m depth
of soil to reclaim a low swathe of land. The removed soil will be used to create a small mound around the lowered area in order to retain water and create a marsh habitat.
We hope to encourage the return of some of those species the area used
to be home to, thus increasing the bio-diversity of the site and making the Reserve an even richer haven for wildlife.

Wellington UDC Sewage Works were just beyond the end of the blocks going north. https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=17.3&lat=52.71466&lon=-2.53383&layers=193&right=BingHyb

I think a water pipe or sewage pipe was supported on those blocks many years ago, they look pre war.
