The River Fal had been diverted at this area of Goss Moor in the 1970’s. Landmarc was able to collaborate with Natural England to restore the natural moorland habitat in this region. The project brief required the excavation of a channel to re-divert the river to create wetland areas. Rock armour was installed at strategic places to prevent erosion.
This project was completed for the National Trust in South Devon. This coastal area required the creation ofscrapes (wetland pools). These scrapes were created to capture spring water, providing a habitat for wading birds and water fowl. Owing to the nature of the ground being a wetland area, it was necessary to use tracked dumpers and an excavator to complete this project to the client’s satisfaction, with minimal disruption to the environment.
A housing development was planned in Somerset that would encroach on the natural habitat of a colony of water voles. The photographs below show how we were able to create a new habitat for the voles.
