Improved Landing Platform on the River Severn at Hampton Loade
We’re pleased to announce that a grant of £5,000 has been used to help install a replacement jetty on the River Severn at picturesque Hampton Loade in Shropshire.
Pete Lambert, Land and Water Team Manager at Shropshire Wildlife Trust, says: “Since the installation of the improved landing platform, the National Trust based at the Dudmaston Estate have reported regular use and it has helped to make the Hampton Loade location become a popular stopping and starting point on the river. The landing stage is in safe hands with the National Trust and we hope it will continue to provide support for river exploration for years to come.”
