Current Projects and Events


CAR PARKING
 
 This remains a big problem.  The investigation regarding the use of land in Nursery Lane, is progressing well at present and we hope that if this is achieved parking will be restricted in other areas of the gorge which are currently being defaced by parking on verges, etc.   Visitors will then be expected to walk a little further to see the river although access to the woodland could be more direct.

LOCK OPEN DAY - SUNDAY 16 FEBRUARY 2014

What a fantastic day. Beautiful sunshine and lots of visitors made the Sprotborough Lock Open Day yesterday an event which will be remembered by many, both young and old. To be able to go down into such a deep lock and talk to those who are responsible for renewing the gates was a tremendous opportunity. Thanks to everyone who helped out at the Don Gorge Community Group gazebo where a great many people looked at our display and where Sprotborough friends and acquaintances from many years ago made themselves known to me again.
 
 
                                          

    Many people visited our display in our gazebo during the day.                                   Visitors descend into the lock                                           Martin Pollard, the person in charge of replacing the gates



FISH & EEL PASS  
 
This has now been completed apart from landscaping, which due to the weather and the extreme muddiness of the land has been delayed.


             

Caught these pics late afternoon on 11 February 2014 just as the piling had been removed from the top of the pass to allow water to flow down
