Rye Meads Nature Reserve: new path

The site: A wetland reserve beside the River Lee which is the RSPB's only nature reserve in Hertfordshire. The reserve comprises a variety of wetland habitats, including lagoons, pools, reed beds and scrapes. These support birds such as wildfowl, waders and bitterns, as well as many other kinds of wildlife.

The brief: Following a successful application for grant funding, Maydencroft were commissioned to lay a new path way around the nature reserve.

Our solution: The decision was made to use a recycled aggregate, tarmac planings. This is a sustainable construction method, which allows easy access for mobility vehicles.

The result: This project has enabled the nature reserve to increase their involvement with the local community and allows for disabled users to access the further reaches of the reserve.
