Humford Dam

alt










The NRT has now completed its report looking at options to improve fish and eel passage at this historical site.Although we have had some very positive and constructive meetings recently with residents, it appears that opposition to removing the dam is still very strong. We therefore have no current plans to progress this (or any other option) at this site.


Winter programme of volunteer works:

Tha NRT proposes to embark on another ambitious programme of winter volunteer sessions. Most of these are supported by the Living Waterways project and so are focused on the Morpeth side streams and the Seaton Burn. However, there are also works on the Forestburn, the main Coquet and tree planting on the Lyne. All of the sessions will be 9.30-12.30. Some may need to be cancelled at short notice due to weather and river conditions; please check the website the night before to see if this applies. Location to meet will be posted on the website a few days in advance. Please bring along suitable footware and gloves (although we also have a stock of gloves in various sizes). We will provide sandwiches, drinks and our famous flapjacks!.
