Fish passage improvements on the Hogsmill

Hogsmill fish pass

Between August and October this year, we’ve been applying many of the river restoration lessons learnt so far on the Wandle (for instance, see here and here) to improving fish passage on our sister chalkstream, the Hogsmill.

Reconnecting these stretches of river will also benefit many other species, and even reduce flood risk for local people.

Toby has written several detailed blogs explaining the full process on the Wandle Trust website: click on the links below to read them in full (and study some stunning before and after pictures too!)
