Middle Street Meadow News
Meadow news - Winter 2023 -24
Visitors to Middle Street Meadow will have noticed that the flood defence bank has been stripped of vegetation by Salisbury City Council parks department. This is a requirement of the Environment Agency in order to protect the flood bank from being undermined by tree roots etc.
The earlier flooding has now receded and river levels are back at their winter normal. Paths are very muddy still, and slippery in places so that visitors need to take care.
Our first conservation work day of 2024 went well and the weather was good for us. Our team of nine volunteers were able to remove two trees which were partially blocking the pathways. We constructed a dead hedge which is great for wildlife. Others of our team made good headway into the invasive bramble clumps. We are keen to keep these down to encourage wildflowers. Why not join us for our next session in February. See the Events page for details.
