A new history and wildlife trail across Hull’s Beverley and Barmston Drain sees wildlife ‘guides’ Wendy the Water Vole and Percy the Perch help reconnect people to their natural environment.

The pilot project – along nine bridges across the drain – gives historical information and helps the community spot wildlife native to the location.

It also includes advice on how to go ‘pond dipping’ in the new Clough Road ‘pocket park’ – to encourage children and families to connect with the Drain and what lives beneath its surface.

The trail brings to life the work of ‘Hull’s Dynamic Drains’, a partnership project with Groundwork Yorkshire, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Hull City Council that aims to improve the urban watercourse, boost wildlife habitats and encourage people to connect with and spend more time in their natural environment, as well as reducing littering and fly-tipping into Hull’s watercourses.
