In the beginning…

This is a web log set up to chronicle some of the developments that are ongoing in the area of Wombourne Park in Wombourne, South Staffordshire, chiefly relating to the Wombrook, the stream more commonly referred to by the local inhabitants as the ‘Brook’.

Although the Brook runs through a larger area of Wombourne, the focus of this log centres upon that part of the stream that runs through Wombourne Park, and directly impacts upon its flora and fauna.

It is hoped that the ‘Friends of Wombrook’ (the local inhabitants’ support group), along with those officers of South Staffordshire District Council who are directly involved in the planned developments affecting the Brook, will occasionally drop into this area in order to contribute to this weblog’s development.

I will attempt to maintain this web log as often as my work permits, and just as long as our host server is available to enable this to happen. You will be helping us at ULTRALAB, the research arm of Anglia Polytechnic University, to research the use of web logs!
