Leaky Woody Barriers are a Natural Flood Management technique that is increasingly being used to help reduce flood peaks. There are several projects across Shropshire and many across the country that are using these techniques, Government policy and funding is increasingly supporting this type of work.
Landowners, farmers, contractors and other interested individuals are invited to join us at Walcot Wood in order to see a barrier being built, learn about the techniques used and understand what is required to install a barrier.
Luke Neal, Shropshire Wildlife Trust rivers team deputy manager, has been delivering a large scale natural Flood management project in the Corve Dale now in its 5th year with several hundred dams installed across the catchment.
