Riverbank erosion control tested

With Storm Abigail (the first storm to be officially named by the UK Met Office) hitting the UK earlier than forecast it’s quickly made its way up to Northumberland today. We experienced some torrential rain overnight, accompanied by gale-force winds. Unsurprisingly, this has swollen the River Breamish. Now, for the first time since it was constructed at the end of September this year, the riverbank erosion control measures near Brandon farm have been tested.

Riverbank erosion control

Riverbank erosion control at Brandon
