Meander Bank Erosion
Erosion - 1996
Floods have badly eroded the meander in the Overy mill stream.
Driving stakes - September 2000
36 live stakes of crack willow, cut from the copse across the stream, were driven into the gravel base of the river bank by volunteers, with the help of a JCB, and secured to the bank.
Stakes - September 2000
This remedy falls far short of proper willow spiling, but it has worked for us in the past.
