Some pictures of the flow in the new pondworks:

The creation of enhanced trout (and other) habitat involves diverting a small portion of our main burn's flow through a series of deepish pools and small ponds before allowing the flow to spread over a lower meadow on its way to rejoin the original course of the burn.
We also hope to attract native trout and perhaps other aquatic life to add to the varieties already present on the site.
Taliesin - Whitehill Muir, to give it its proper name - is an ancient woodland site replanted by Southwest Community Woodlands Trust. As part of the trust's activities it runs courses on traditional timberworking skills, and both structures in the pictures here
- the log cabin on the right and the cruck-frame on left - were built on such courses, as was the Loo with a View!
