The Leat Project restored a man-made water channel or leat, at the Woodland Education Centre which is in south-west England. The Leat which was first constructed in victorian times, prevents stormwater, silt and pollution from entering many of the Centre's aquatic habitats. It does this by carrying excess water along the eastern side of the Centre's steep wooded valley.

The Wetland Area

This habitat along with an area of marsh, a pond and a small lake are now protected by the restored leat.
