Ladyvale Bridge - Fish-pass works starting soon

Ladyvale Bridge in Cardinham Woods is beautiful - but the newer bridge beside it has been causing a block to migrating fish in all-but perfect water conditions.

West Country Rivers Trust & The Fowey Rivers Association have been working with The Environment Agency & The Forestry Commission to plan a fish-pass around the 'pipe-culverts'

The work has been approved and funding sourced - which is great news.

Better still - work will start very soon, probably in the coming week.

Here are the 'before' pictures - Hopefully the after pictures won't be too long coming -
