The first step in the plan to revive the Nuns Stream through Hyde is complete.  Following detailed studies and measurements of the existing wildlife, a band of volunteers laboured away last week to create gravel “berms” and shelves along the walled-in section of the stream between Monks Road and King Alfred’s Place. This will encourage the stream to take a more sinuous path along its channel, eventually creating areas for plants, insects and fish to flourish.
