Fish Pass Easements

We recently completed a major £200k project funded by DEFRA through The Rivers Trust (the 'umbrella organisation').  This included works at Lesbury Dam, Denwick, Filberthaugh, Monks Bridge and Lady's Bridge on the Aln, work at the Cawledge Burn Viaduct and at Acklington Dam on the Coquet.

Lumsden and Carroll successfully delivered work at Lesbury, Denwick, Cawledge and Acklington.  Northumberland Estates have funded the works at the three other sites on the Aln.

The project has been a major success, with many sea trout and salmon using the new passes very soon after opening (in some cases immediately after!)

This winter, we will design fish passes on two sites on the Waren Burn and two sites on the Blyth.  We hope to build these next year with funding from the Environment Agency.
