Ditch blocking on an epic scale

This project helped lay a lot of the foundations for the Upper Conwy Catchment Project. Drainage ditched installed between the 1900s - 1970s for agriculture and grouse shooting, were drying out the bog. By working with Natural Resources Wales we blocked 300km worth of drainage ditches and installed 30,000 peat dams, helping restore the precious blanket bog on the Migneint improving carbon storage and alleviating flooding.
