Hunt Nature Park Shalford

Visitors to the northernmost reach of the canal at Stonebridge, Shalford, can now view the first part of the Trust's programme of environmental enhancement. These improvements flow from a bequest from the late Ed and Doris Hunt who reserved part of their estate to support a local environmental project. We have completed a riverside path, planted new trees and an Osier Bed. We have recently completed the construction of a viewing platform.
