RRC Site Visit to the River Frome, Stroud @ Gloucestershire

The River Restoration Centre (RRC) has a long history of running friendly and informative site visits to really good examples of restoration best practice and innovation. Join this site visit to one of the runners up of the 2017 UK River Prize, and the winner of the Innovation Project category.

The Stroud RsuDs project is located in the catchment of the Stroud River Frome, which rises from the Cotswold escarpment in Gloucestershire. The project arose primarily out of a concerted effort by community flood action groups to reduce flood risk using natural flood management techniques.
