On 24th October 2020, a set of Faggets were installed on the bridge nearest to the Village Hall. The following image shows the river bed where the mud and silt is uniformly distributed showing an inefficient movement of the river.

The next image shows the same river bed on New Year’s Day 10 weeks later.

The silt is now distributed down the line of the stream and the faster flow on the outside of the bend has actually moved it. The silt is still deposited on the river bed on the slower flow of the inside of the bend. The shape of the silt shows how the faggets have shaped the flow to turn it into the direction to pass straight through the bridge arch.
