The Wandle Trust has secured funding from Defra’s Catchment Restoration Fund for habitat improvements on our sister chalkstream, the Hogsmill, which rises in Ewell and enters the Thames in Kingston near the Rose Theatre.
Before any improvement works can take place, something needed to be done about the enormous amounts of Himalayan balsam growing on the banks.
So, on another sweltering Sunday, and with the blessing of Thames Water on whose site we would be carrying out the balsam removal, 20 of us were admitted through the gates of the sewage treatment works in Lower Marsh Lane.
Our full report of this event has now been transferred over to our new South East Rivers Trust website.

Great event and blog, Erica – it’s all started happening on the Hogsmill!
Well done on the ‘Check-Clean-Dry’!
