Work under way to spruce up Sheffield’s neglected Ochre Dike

Have your say

Work is well under way to spruce up a neglected waterway close to Crystal Peaks shopping centre.

Ochre Dike is a small stream that rises in Gleadless Townend and meanders past the centre before joining the River Rother.

Crystal Peaks has been working with the Riverside Stewardship Company to manage the restoration and a volunteer clean-up day is being organised for September 14.

The stewardship company runs riverside management work and community projects.
