About

On this walk we explore Grassmoor Country park and the nearby Avenue Washlands, two historically industrial areas that have been reclaimed for nature and people.

Find out how restoring floodplains can increase flood storage and help to ’slow the flow’ of our rivers. Admire the wildlife that has returned and flourished in these once heavily industrialised areas.
