Kidds Mill and the eel pass on the Duke of Northumberland River
Saturday 07 October 2017
10:30 to 12:30
Today we shall be walking from Church Street in Isleworth to Kneller Gardens in Twickenham along the banks of the Duke of Northumberland's River. We are very grateful to the Environment Agency for their permission to be able to go in to see Kidds Mill sluice. Chris will talk about the work at the Environment Agency at Kidds Mill, and FORCE trustee Joe Pecorelli will tell us about his work with Citizen Scientists to improve eel and elver migration between the tidal Thames and its tributaries including the Duke of Northumberland's River. There will also be a chance to look at the remains of the Mill workings in the site.
We will continue our walk along the Duke of Northumberland's River towards Kneller Gardens, passing the site of several other mills and also the site of a further eel pass.The walk ends in Kneller Gardens, where you can buy refreshments in the pavilion or you can leave earlier at Tesco near Twickenham Stadium. This is a morning to walk whilst learning about the locale and wildlife near the river.
Please come along with with wellingtons or waterproof footwear as the ground is uneven in places, and in clothing suitable for the weather on that day. Booking is essential , due to the nature of the site at Kidds Mill, we need to know how many folk will attend.
This walk is organised by FORCE as part of a series of walks and talks along the Duke of Northumberland's River and local area. We look forward to seeing you.
