Swindale Beck rediscovers it natural meanders. Farming Today visited the area on 28 September 2016, to coincide with the launch of a report from Green Alliance and the National Trust. Improved water-planning on a catchment-wide basis, that's the thrust of the report. And Swindale Beck shows what can be achieved. Listen to Caz Graham on Farming Today, read the report. Read the blog I wrote on 14 July 2016 for a glimpse of the flora and fauna of the area.
