The picture to the right shows Borrowash Bottom Lock a year ago, it’s looked a lot different today!
Work continues every Wednesday and we are planning the return of the WRGiE party next year.
We are also looking to start work in the Spondon area in November, once we get the all clear on land ownership. With all the ground clearance we move a lot of old/diseased trees from the canal bed and banks, some of this makes very good burning material for stoves so if you are interested in buying some from us, or indeed if you know of any area that is secure for us to store some wood please get in touch with myself.
It is not all doom and gloom for the woodland, this month we are receiving 420 young trees/saplings from the Woodland Trust to plant in the local area, this time in the right place away from any stone work or footpaths.
We understand that this is a green corridor into the City and a life line for all kinds of birds, insects and wildlife, plus a joy to travel along, or indeed travel on so it is right that we replace more than we remove.
