Culvert Removal – Gilwiskaw Brook

On land upstream of Clock Mill, a small tributary joins the Gilwiskaw Brook on the left bank. This stream has been impacted by culverting at the confluence with the Gilwiskaw Brook, which causes local scour of the channel bed and banks.

In line with the River Mease SSSI/SAC Restoration Plan, the culvert has been removed and the natural tributary channel reinstated.
