Reed Bed Maintenance Weekend

Come and help maintain our reed bed system and find out how it works.

Space is available on this event! :-D

Here at Bradwell we have a fantastic biological system for waste water purification. This involves filtration through a series of reed beds culminating in purified water that drains into a final pond. This pond is a haven for wildlife and is frequently used by educational study groups. Due to excessive reed growth in the pond we need to have a weekend of maintenance. If you would like to learn more about the reed bed system and spend a day reed cutting then please come along and join us. If you have never used a scythe before then this is a great chance to have a go. The weekend will be led by Malcolm Hardy and Jonney Aldridge, both experts on the system.
