Kingfisher on the Poolhouse, Wombourne

Local wildlife photographer and film maker Richard Claxton took this photo of a kingfisher.
At the time, Richard was hoping to film water voles, and fortunately had a camera to hand to capture this elusive creature-rarely seen along the Wom Brook, and then only fleetingly, as a vivd blue streak.

The next twelve months..Part 3-Bridge renovation

Bow Bridge Repairs
South Staffordshire Council are responsible for maintaining the footbridges crossing the Wom Brook. Road bridges however come under the jurisdiction of Staffordshire County Council.

We have been informed by the South Staffordshire Council’s Architectural and Landscape Services that the pedestrian bridge that lies parallel to the Gravel Hill Road bridge will soon receive a coat of paint and decking.
