Becton Bunny: Slowing the stream

One of the delights of the coast path near Barton-on-Sea is Becton Bunny where the stream can still be seen running down the valley into the sea.

A surprise project is being considered to return the stream to its natural flow. This involves removing artificially straightened sections upstream, especially in Barton’s Long  Meadow and at the side of residential Willow Walk.

The Environment Agency, which has published proposals, is holding a consultation from 10am to 5pm at the Scout Hut in Long Meadow on Saturday 24 August.
