Cockington Lakes Restoration

Cockington Lakes Restoration

Community Award Winner 2017

Located within a steep sided valley, accessed by very narrow roads, the restoration of these historic lakes was always going to be a big challenge. Here the very same micro climate that has protected the many rare trees and plants for hundreds of years is by contrast the biggest benefit and the greatest challenge.
