Three photos hopefully capture the stages of the willow weaving process employed along a stretch of the Wom.
The left-hand photo taken from the footpath shows two brave souls standing in the freezing Wom, actually constructing the structure.

The centre photo shows the completed effect (Feb/March2004)
