Beavers2 Bridge Pool This picture is looking upriver and is a good pool, perhaps some willows/trees on the L/H side to provide some cover and a groyne at the top of the pool to increase to water flow.
Beavers3 Boggy Bankside The R/H bank side just above the Bridge pool is very boggy and could do with a drainage channel being dug and drainage pipe being inserted.
Beavers4 Bank Vegetation Just up from the boggy bank on L/H side the rhododendron bush needs trimmed back and dead branch removed from the river.
Beavers5 Bank Side More boggy bank side, R/H side just above rhododendron bush, again needs drainage. Also dead tree needs o be removed.
Beavers6 Upstream from metal box to waterfall Trees may need trimmed, trees lying in river need removed plus trees lying on the bank side need cut and removed or sections cut out to allow members to walk along the bank side. May also need some in-stream work.
Beavers11 Continued…. Tree removal finishes at top of waterfall
Beavers12 Beyond large cliff face The R/H bank beyond the cliff face could do with some willows/trees to provide cover.
Beavers13 Beyond small cliff face pool Bank side beyond here could do with strimming and some willows/trees for cover and some in-stream work
Beavers14 Pool beyond fence over the river up to little weir Could do with some willows planted at this pool and also above it (possibly both sides). The grass needs trimmed back and an island dug away.
Beavers15 Little weir up to ford L/H bank side needs some willows/trees for cover and also to slow down the obvious bank erosion. The R/H side bank needs strimmed.
Beavers16 Path from bridge to little weir. The path needs, at various point along its length, to have drainage inserted and the vegetation cut back. No Photo SUMMARY This work will take a number of weeks to complete and some of the work will be quite heavy as there are some big trees needing to be dealt with. A petrol driven chainsaw would be a boon.
