Major project completed on the River Glaven
Posted on November 14, 2012
Tim Jacklin has recently completed a major river restoration project at Glandford Mill on the River Glaven in North Norfolk.
The project involved creating a new meandering river channel through the bed of a former mill pond. The second phase of the project will install a fish and eel pass at the mill sluice, enabling trout, sea trout and eels to access the newly-created habitat upstream of the Mill and beyond.
This work was funded by the Environment Agency as part of the East Anglian Sea Trout Project. The new river channel was designed by Professor Richard Hey and the works carried out by West Dereham Plant Ltd.
The video below shows a time lapse film of the creation of the new channel.
