Braughing Parish Council are hoping to restore a section of River Quin in the heart of Braughing.
The Parish Council have recently been granted ownership of a section of river between the fords at Braughing, under Section 106 rules due to a new housing development. They are looking for advice on managing and restoring this stretch of river to develop its potential for wildlife and people.
