At Canterbury in Kent, the Great Stour Way and Hambrook Marshes Nature Reserve were both sand and gravel sites worked and restored over a period of 30 years.
Today, there is marsh land, fishing and wildlife lakes, and paths for cycling and walking alongside the picturesque River Stour. Brett has worked closely with several local partners to develop areas that are rich in wildlife, most of which are open to the public and enjoy wheelchair access. The 20-hectare Hambrook Marshes Nature Reserve is managed by the Kent Enterprise Trust and is used to run work and training activities in nature conservation and land management.
Species benefitting include: bittern, lapwing, common lizard, water vole, kingfisher, grass snake, pippistrelle bat and crayfish.
