All Around Tarvin
By David Smeatham - 25th February 2014 6:00am
The Roman Bridges saw their fair share of attention in 2013 and its great to see they have been cleaned up after the vandalism. I spoke to David Cummings, the Warden of the Platts, and he was clearly pleased with the outcome but did say that it may be some time until the lichen recovers.
However, there is still uncertainty as we go into 2014. There is still concern about the long-term impact of the lake that has been created next to the River Gowy, adjacent to the Platts. On one hand the expanse of water may attract new species of flora, insect, mammals and birdlife. On the other hand it does have the potential to damage the fauna and flora of the area, especially the recently spotted otter.
David's long-term aim for the Platts is to continue to manage the reserve as it is.
