Restoration of the Lower Crane - a river walk
Friday 28 June 2024
10:30 to 12:00
Join FORCE for a walk visiting habitat improvements on the River Crane, a river that many know already as a place to walk, relax and enjoy the natural environment. We invoite all to come along and discover the area too. This will be an interesting walk & talk about river improvements with re-naturalising the banks and the new fish pass at Mereway Weir. It has been organised as part of London Rivers Week. The photo shows the concrete lined reach of the river at Craneford Way Twickenham where a river restoration trial has started, and we shall visit to see the progress.
The walk is a joint walk with ZSL & FORCE who have been working on these sites for almost 20 years. We shall start by the fountain outside the Brewery Wharf site on London Road, opposite Twickenham Station, and walk upstream to explore the lower River Crane. This linear walk ends near Kneller Gardens so you can grab a cuppa at Kneller Pavilion or you can walk back to the station probably by 12:30pm as this is a linear walk. There are bus stops on Twickenham Green if you prefer to catch the bus home.
As we shall be walking over varied terrain and some of the ground may be muddy, please wear appropriate attire and footwear for the terrain and weather on the day. The event is free but registration is essential so we can know how many folk to expect. Registration will open a month beforehand. Due to safeguarding needs all children under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. We are a very sociable group and look forward to meeting you !
