The Langley Brook at Middleton has been identified as an ecologically important site in need of improvements for wildlife. Funding from the Environment Agency will allow us to undertake work to transform the Langley Brook into a Local Wildlife Site, making it a haven for plants and animals.
The Langley Brook is a tributary of the river Tame in northwest Warwickshire at Middleton. The brook is ecologically important, with a topology able to support a wide variety of habitats for fish species.
Currently, the Langley Brook has been channelized along much of its length and suffers from issues with flooding and potential pollution events.
The site has the potential to be designated as a Local Wildlife Site, if necessary interventions are made to improve it from its current WFD (Water Framework Directive) ‘Moderate’ classification. With funding from the Environment Agency, we will be carrying out various actions to help achieve this goal.
