Church Pool Covert woodland has always been a wonderful place to visit, with many walkers (and their furry friends!) enjoying the peace and quiet of the trees and the river Tame. But visitors will know that access around the woodland hasn’t always been the easiest, with slippery boardwalks, precarious stepping-stones crossing streams, and bridges having fallen into disrepair.
However, in May, Lea Marston Parish Council and Tame Valley Wetlands were extremely lucky to be joined by teams from Prologis, Whiting Landscape and Forterra, who donated and built two fantastic new bridges, upgraded the boardwalk around the wetland area, spruced up our outdoor classroom to be used by visiting school groups, repaired fencing, and installed several benches around the woodland.
We had a great day working on this project – between the three teams, almost 100 people were hard at work, with their technical expertise ensuring all structures were built to a high standard, whilst taking care to respect the wildlife around the woodland.
The work will massively improve access around the woods, helping more people to enjoy and connect with nature in Lea Marston.
Huge thanks to the teams at Prologis, Whiting Landscape and Forterra, and to everyone who helps us ensure Church Pool Covert remains a great place to visit!
