Update to erosion control on the River Severn

We visited the live willow spiling on the River Severn (Sustrans cycle path) in the summer to see how it was growing.  It is doing amazingly well (see the 'after' photo) with lots of bushy growth.  It should help to capture the silt from the River (the River Severn is a heavily silt-laden water course) and prevent any further erosion to the bank.  

Sustrans have been very happy that the erosion control solution was low cost, low impact and did not necessitate the closing of the cycle path.
