New project video: River Bain Habitat Creation

This River Bain project took a straightened section of chalk stream in the Lincolnshire Wolds and created a natural by pass channel around a former mill to improve natural habitat and biodiversity.
This was a partnership project led by the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project  (LCSP). Funding was provided by LCSP partners Lincolnshire County Council, Anglian Water, Environment Agency, Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and Natural England.

Advice and recommendations were provided by the Wild Trout Trust and the channel was designed by Professor Richard Hey.
