Last Wednesday night, towards the end of BBC 1’s Nature of Britain, Wombourne was featured for a few minutes, when Miranda Krestovnikoff presented her report about the conservation and education work that the Friends of Wom Brook undertake along the Brook in Wombourne. Rather fittingly, her report began in Wombourne, and then switched to highlight the sterling work being undertaken by the Whitchurch group who have developed their water vole habitat.
The main part of the programme, produced by Alan Titchmarsh, focused on ‘Freshwater Britain’-not only providing an informative insight into the lives of some of Britain’s more ‘interesting’ water wildlife, but also presenting a veritable geography lesson, which gave an interesting account of the journey our water takes, from rain falling on our uplands, flowing downstream and forming with other streams into small rivers, which in turn join others to make a large river flowing down to our coasts and thus into the sea.

When you get to the BBC page, look for ‘Watch Video’/’Freshwater’ – please be patient-Wombourne is featured towards the end of the feature.
