Upper Wensleydale Project

Upper Wensleydale down to Kilgram Bridge

The important issues have been identified by partners as

  • Sedimentation
  • Fragmented river habitats and wider catchment features
  • Compacted soils
  • Flashy river system
  • Poor farm infrastructure
  • The intensification of grassland in the mid to lower catchment
  • Increased tourism pressure on water usage and waste water treatment
  • Deteriorating potable water quality due to peat colouring and nutrient enrichment
