Malham Beck project video

WTT Research and Conservation Officer, Jonny Grey, has been working with two local farmers on Malham Beck in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. They were keen to return to more natural wet meadow systems and this was achieved by taking the artificial stone banks that were constraining the river and redistributing the material into the river. This allows the beck to return to the processes of erosion and deposition, creating more natural, complex, diverse habit for trout and other wildlife.
