Hey Brook Revival


The project will deliver a pilot restoration of some of the habitats within the Low Hall Local Nature Reserve through the creation of a Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) during 2017 and 2018.

It will reconnect local people with their landscape by offering opportunities for volunteers to survey the Hey Brook and to deliver a series of practical habitat creation projects. Once the pilot is complete a second wetland project will be delivered in the Carbon Landscape area during 2019 and 2020.

The installation of a reed bed will increase the resilience of the landscape by helping to cope with sudden large amounts of storm water for the communities down-stream of the Low Hall reserve.


  • Two wetland SuDS facilities created
  • 1.3 ha improvements to riparian habitat
  • Two water quality improvement projects delivered
  • Eight people established as citizen scientists to monitor water quality within the Carbon Landscape
