About Cliviger Fishponds
The improvement work at Cliviger Ponds is now just about completed (Sept 2016).
Drainage on the paths has been improved. Trees have been pruned and fallen trees removed. Fishing pegs have been removed and/or repaired -reeds have also been thinned out. The silt trap at the inflow to the top pond has been rebuilt. The spillway and silt trap below the bottom pond has also been rebuilt.
The small area of parking opposite the access gate has also been cleared and improved.-now room for 3-4 cars.
This work has been funded by the Lancashire Environmental Fund and Cliviger Parish Council (Funded by Scottish Renewables’Coal Clough Windfarm.
Thanks very much to both our funders.
