Ramsbury Community River and Wildlife Project

Ramsbury Community River & Wildlife Project

The ARK led project is a collaboration with Ramsbury Parish Council, Ramsbury Recreation Ground, Ramsbury Wildlife Resrve (owned by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust), Ramsbury Scouts and Ramsbury Primary School.

We have planted a huge yew hedge alongside the recreation ground, carried out restoration and enhancement to eroded river bank at Ramsbury Triangle. The public footpath by the river has been made safe for buggies and wheelchairs again.  A fire pit has been built for local scouts to enjoy their outdoor space in the dark winter evenings. Two new dipping platforms and steps have been built in the Wildlife Reserve, just off from the High Street to increase access and enjoyment for the community. We have created our first rain garden, featuring green roofs and water butts at Ramsbury Primary School.

Every element of the project has involved the local community, scroll down to see our project in action.
