The Friends Group took the opportunity to view the site scheduled for re-development from the vantage point of the footbridge running parallel with Gravel Hill.

(The photo was taken from the site itself, and looks east along the Wom).

Revetment Work

Plans are well underway to commence revetment and conservation work along a well eroded bank section of the Wom, within the Gravel Hill section. South Staffordshire District Council have given the Friends Group to understand that this work is scheduled to commence in January.

This is the section featured in the above photograph, and it is hoped that such pipe work may in some way be disguised.

This scene can only be viewed during the winter months, as usually it is obscured by leaves. The view looks east towards Gravel Hill and the centre of Wombourne.
