Works on the Spetchley Revival Project are progressing well with the contractors now halfway through the project.
Lake dredging and bank re-building works started in early August. Following the emptying of the lake, excavators are now on the site, taking the silt out of the area.
The Spetchley Revival Project is a long-term project designed to invest in securing the Gardens for future generations. Thanks to European funding through DEFRA, stage 1 of the project has been already completed.
Following a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund, stage 2 of the project, among others, includes restoration work to the Garden Pond, such a valued part of the Gardens, dredging, restoration of the banks, and wildlife enhancements.
Completion of the phase 2 has been set for mid-October.
