Event Details

Working with Biomatrix Water and the permission of the Canal and River Trust, we are in the process of transforming the Regent's Canal into a green corridor between the Kingsland and Whitmore Road bridges. We have planted shallow areas with yellow flag iris and other native aquatic and marginal plant species to create rich habitat for nature. Additionally, we are working with the help of the Woodland Trust to replicate woodland edge habitat by planting native hedging along the towpath. We hope to extend the existing planted areas, install floating planted islands and increase the hedging. This is a pilot scheme for the Canal and River Trust to show what is possible. Eventually the entire waterway can connect the various parks and green spaces along its route and act as a green corridor for our wildlife. We already have herons, swans and an occasional kingfisher but there is the potential for water vole and otter too!

On the 22nd of July, as part of the National Park City week of events, between 11.15am and 1.45pm, we will be taking visitors on a narrowboat to show what we have done so far and share our vision. The meeting and finishing points for tours will be beside the Whitmore Road bridge, just before the Towpath cafe.
