Work starts to extend Wenffrwd Nature Reserve to canal


* Work begins on the Wenffrwd Nature Reserve.

Work has started to connect the Wenffrwd Nature Reserve to the canal at the far end of the site.

OBR Construction has been appointed to carry out the work which should be complete by the beginning of October. 

David Shiel, area manager of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is in charge of the scheme, said: "The path from the Nature Reserve will link to the canal just beyond where the canal passes under the road.  

"It’s a very steep bank so the work will include ground stabilisation – including soil nailing.  Quite a challenge but a big move to linking the site to the wider area.

"Access around the site should not be affected whilst work is going on and we will do everything to avoid any inconvenience to visitors. 

"This is the final piece in the jigsaw in the development of Wenffrwd as a nature reserve that started in 2021, and will make it possible to link to the canal without crossing the road."
