On Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th June, let’s come together and build 1 or 2 structures along the river stretch between the viaduct and the Uxbridge road in Ealing.

This is an over-widen river stretch that offers an opportunity to create better habitat for wildlife and more diverse features for people to enjoy while at Brent Meadow.

Using traditional conservation techniques of weaving and securing large woody debris at the sides of the channel, we will create a continuum between the riverbank and the water offering ecological and aesthetic benefits.

It would be great to see you on the river. Please let me know if you are coming by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
