This is a live project, with work underway as we speak to make our vision a reality.

We aim to restore and reconnect 230 metres of the historic Emm Brook channel as it flows through Riverside Park in Woosehill. This will create a free-flowing, natural channel that is a haven for aquatic wildlife and a wonderful asset to the local community.

Our work will also take action to improve the water quality of the Brook, engage communities with the river through a series of events, and run sessions with local schools.

To stay up to date with the project’s progress, please visit its dedicated webpage.
