A walk taking in the area along the east bank of the river Severn to the immediate south of Gloucester.

The area is home to the huge Gloucester landfill now complete and awaiting restoration, as well as Netheridge Sewage works. These and other developments provide interest and opportunities, which will be the focus of our discussion. Led by Meyrick Brentnall at Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust we will talk to rangers and landfill operators to give a real flavour of what potential the area has for landscape, biodiversity, amenity and climate resilience improvements.

  • Time – 10.00 start and finishing with lunch and networking at 13.00. (Please bring money to purchase lunch)
