When a forest water course is restored to its pre-Victorian course, it's not just the stream and its banks which are positively affected. The slowing of the water leaving the forest has an effect on the streams environs. Here as a consequence of meanders being restored to a section of Black Water, and the subsequent changes in seasonal water retention, the environs are lush and verdant, where previously they were much less so. It's a real joy to wander off the path and follow the winding stream as passes through woodland like this, so alive and thriving. To stop and sit, immersing yourself in their verdance is spiritually reviving.
