November 2017 Meeting

Last nights guest speaker was Michael Heaton’s to talk on “Watermeadows: their history and value to anglers”. The water meadows system was in use from 16th to 20th century across England and shaped our river valleys to what they are now. The Frome valley is covered with relics from these systems, old hatches, ditches etc. He also said that the river system today could benefit their return, by helping to remove the silt and Nitrates & Phosphates, plus reducing the risk of flooding.
