Description"The pond on the right has been recently created as part of the Belford Flood Alleviation Scheme. The scheme is the result of a research project by Newcastle University and the Environment Agency to develop a low cost, low impact plan to reduce the risk of flooding to a small number of properties in Belford. The scheme features a large number of small scale alterations to the landscape including creating natural barriers to the flow of water (both overland and along the channel) and creating ponds (such as the one shown here) to intercept and store water in times of high flow and then allow a gradual release of water when water levels in the stream drop."
