The Chalk Stream initiative https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/chalk-streams continued this week with work being undertaken this time on the Vicar’s Brook. Extensive sections of hazel faggots were added to the natural meander to narrow the channel, fasten the flow and encourage silt to be dropped in the slacker water. Flow deflectors were also secured to create scarification and diversity in the flow and the stream bed. More work is planned for the second week in June. Come and check the progress!
