Working on the historic estate at Fonthill saw the removal of 22000m3 of silt from the lake and transport to a receptor site over 1km away.

With Heritage Lottery funding Spetchley Park Gardens are able to fufill their long term ambition to restore the Garden Pool to its former glory with the help of WM Longreach.

Director Damian McGettrick and site manager Dave Ryan attended the official opening of the Chinese Bridge at Croome Park.  Works were completed on schedule ready for the public to enjoy the bridge over the summer. 

WM Longreach was employed by Tamworth Borough Council last December to dredge the Stoneydelph balancing pond.  Following a drying period we returned this June to remove the silt placed on the neighbouring field and restored the area, completing the job to a high standard and to the satisfaction of the client. 

WM Longreach has been promoting the "This is Civil Engineering..." campaign across a number of projects including the Chinese Bridge at Croome Park, Worcestershire this month.  A number of information days were held throughout the project where the public could come and speak with the team about the engineering works.

Having worked for the National Trust on several restoration projects at Capability Brown's Croome Park over the last 10 years, our work has now begun to re instate the Chinese Bridge.    Lost to rot and ruin by the mid 19th Century, the Chinese Bridge is being replicated with the help of the GOCC and repositioned over the artificial River Croome.

Working with the WWT

Improvements to the wetland areas and wildlife ponds were completed for the Welney Wetland Trust as part of their planned maintenance works.  Working closely with the Client team, a small machine on rubber tracks and extra long reach was used to minimise the impact on the adjacent land.

Through specialist plan hire business the company was asked to supply equipment for the winter maintenance of the pools at West Mindlands Safari Park.  Working with their Contractor, a machine on the floating pontoon was used to remove silt and a second long reach excavator loaded a series of dumptrucks.  The company was involved with the previous clean up of the Hippo Pools in 2005.
