Smithills Natural Flood Management event
Smithills Estate welcomed more than 20 peers across the conservation sector to the first of the events in the demonstration element of the project. Visitors from EA, River Trusts, National Trust and United Utilities, plus others, joined us on a walk to take in some of the flood interventions on site. It was a chance to network and also share learnings from the work at Smithills for those considering their own flood management projects.
Of course, no visit to Smithills would be complete these days, without a passing visit to see Terry and the Celtic Horse Loggers as they crack on with the SPHN notice on the larch woodland.
