The Hogsmill: A Work of Art


You may remember that earlier this year we were lucky enough to spend a week in the Hogsmill with the Lower Mole Partnership. It was a chilly week in March but all our volunteers were enthusiastic and we managed to restore 500m of river through the Hogsmill Local Nature Reserve. With wood from the local area we created 9 brash berms, narrowing the river to increase local flow diversity. We pulled out 48 railway sleepers to reconnect the river to a natural bank, and in more difficult places we naturalised the bank with pre-planted coir rolls. A busy week to say the least.

What we weren’t aware of was that Peter, from the Lower Mole Partnership, turned our week in the river into a work of art. Check it out…

It was such a great week and we hope to be back again – with another painting!
