Wetland Update - November 2019

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.

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