Keadby Warping Drain

Project Overview

This project has fenced the Isle of Axholme and North Nottinghamshire Water Level Management Board’s land on which Keadby Warping Drain is situated; this has allowed grazing and the creation of grassland habitat so that the historic Keadby Warping Drain is situated in an area of complementary habitats with access and engagement in ‘warping’ and land drainage history.

The IoAHC Programme Team along with volunteers have been, and will continue to undertake annual wildlife surveys to monitor the habitat improvements.

What difference has this project made reconnecting people with their landscape and cultural heritage?

Volunteers have been out with the IoAHC Programme Team to help undertake wildlife surveys on site, this will help volutneers, the team and partners understand how fencing and gazing the land has helped with improving the bio-diversity of this landscape.

2020 will see an interpretation board installed on site to allow visitors to understand the history of warping on the Isle, along with what flora and fauna are in the area.
