Chalk stream water meadows receive Lottery funding

Chalk stream anglers spend a lot of their time amongst water meadows, but few are aware of the purpose and historical significance of these unique and artificial landscapes. Now, thanks to a grant of £28,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and funding from Wiltshire Council, the historically and ecologically unique water meadow systems of the Wylye Valley in Wiltshire are to be the subject of an historical research and public awareness project

This project is led by Michael Heaton, archeological advisor to the Wild Trout Trust.
