Volunteer task : Sevington Weir – revetment task

September 5 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sevington Weir, Mill / Sevington Lane
Ashford, Kent TN240UF United Kingdom

Weirs are ancient man-made features installed in our rivers at mill locations so designed to alter the rivers flow characteristics. These are now realised to be undesirable barriers to fish movement in our rivers. Hence, nationally, there is a programme to remove (partially) many of these weirs from our river courses. Our task at Sevington Weir is to install faggots and stakes to prevent bank erosion, once the Weir (in part ) is removed at a forthcoming date.
