NFM at Reeds Farm

Natural flood management at Reeds Farm to reduce flood risk downstream and offer additional benefits.

Leaky Woody Structures (LWS) installed along the Alder Stream at Reeds Farm to 'slow the flow' and reduce flood risk downstream. Poplars along the stream pollarded, a buffer zone fenced off from the farm's sheep to keep sheep safe and allow natural regeneration in the buffer zone.
