Rivers Blackwater and Pant

This section of the River Pant will benefit from 600m of back channel reinstatement which will help to increase the variety of river habitat and therefore increase the diversity of the site.

The reinstatement of the back channel will also help to bring the river back to its natural state and contribute to the management of the river flow.

Please contact us if you have any questions or suggestions regarding this project idea.
