Ten years later

Ten years ago this stretch of the Frome just north of Dorchester was barren, featurless, and had a serious lack of life!

So we came up with a plan, ideas from the DFC,a little input from the EA and we installed six upstream flow deflectors, using hazel bundles, live willow, lots of enthusiastic volunteers, photographs and time to watch nature take its course…..How time flies……


This week we are spending a few days using some of this fabulous willow to re instate some of these flow deflectors, adding even more woody debris to this lovely channel, I must say thanks to the FP&WDFA for funding this project, there will be a full report on the website when we complete this work.
