Canal & River Trust's Henwood Tip site at Catherine-de-Barnes
In truth, little has really changed here since August when SP1779 : Construction site next to the Grand Union Canal was taken, but the signage at the far end of the site implies that the site is managed by the Canal & Rivers Trust (formerly the British Waterways Board), and was formerly a dredging 'tip' site. In reality, it's no longer used by the Trust for that purpose, and with some assistance from the staff of a local branch of the HSBC Bank, it's being replanted and managed as a wildlife site, partly as a nursery to grow saplings for plantings elsewhere along the canal, plus a number of on-site features which will improve the tip itself as a nature reserve.
