Village Design Statement
Earlier this month with the agreement of the Trust a film company who uses drones, recorded images of the water meadows in flood. This shows the meanders of the river and the sections that were used for extending the grazing season for sheep by shallow submersion. I attach the link and hope you find it interesting. The Trust have the rights to the images but have agreed that we can share them with friends and supporters locally.
