Sandpit Restoration

Home » Newsroom » Sandpit Restoration

The restoration of the western section of Mere Farm Quarry has been proceeding rapidly in the (mostly) dry weather.

The lake contours are now in place as is the topsoil as most of the site has now been returned to the original levels, with the exception of the south western corner nearest to Alderley Road, where work is proceeding.

The site has always been a haven for all sorts of wildlife and the bird population is diverse and growing.

Ground nesting birds like larks and lapwings are fairly abundant on the site and as the restoration works have proceeded, numbers seem to be increasing.

As always, click on the pictures for a larger view.
