Welcome to friends of Ecological Owlthorpe

Public Inquiry Information supporting Ecological Owlthorpe as an upstream nature based solution protecting the environment from downstream flooding.

I would like to thank the 795 local school Children who in 2012 helped to create our ecological Oasis. the project has proven both educational and environmentally friendly to all who visit.

Also I thank Crystal Peaks Shopping Mall and retail Park for part funding the Interpretation Boards situated in many locations around Ecological Owlthorpe.
