Ouse Washes: Middle Level Barrier Bank raising works "Island of reeds - The Ouse Washes near Welney" by Richard Humphrey

The Middle Level Barrier Bank is the bank of the Ouse Washes reservoir extending from Earith to Welmore Lake Sluice. The Environment Agency are carrying out work to comply with recommendations made by the reservoir Inspecting Engineer to complete the works under the Reservoirs Act 1975.

The bank works for 2021 are now complete, following a year when a season of wet weather caused delays to the current construction programme. It is expected that the overall bank raising works will be completed in 2022.
