Cockshut Stream Restoration Project

We’re very happy to be involved in the Cockshut Stream Restoration Project - restoring, revitalising and protecting this chalk stream. The Cockshut is a 3km long chalk stream that flows from springs at the foot of the South Downs in Kingston, joining The River Ouse at Lewes before flowing out to sea. Work is about to begin to realign the stream into a new channel which will flow through a 6.8 hectare wetland habitat to the east of the Stanley Turner Ground. A rare and unique habitat, many of the world’s 220 chalk streams are found in England; a high proportion of these have been adversely affected by human activities.

If you would like to get involved with this project and other initiatives which benefit our local ecology, contact Helen to find out how you can get involved.
