One of the largest restoration projects ever undertaken by Kingcombe Aquacare, Mells Park presented us with a wide range of challenges.
Foxcote Estate has been restored over recent years to become one of the foremost shooting properties in the UK. Kingcombe Aquacare has been closely involved in this project, having already cleaned out and restored three large and historic lakes on the estate.
Rycote Park was the site of an Elizabethan royal palace, and the main house still incorporates part of that original building. The extensive grounds include a lake of almost 5 hectares, part of which dates back to Elizabethan times but which was considerably enlarged and landscaped by Capability Brown in the 18th century. Very little work had been done to the lake since that time. By 2000 it was heavily silted up, with only 0.5m depth of water over most of its surface area, and seriously encroached by alders, willows and marginal vegetation around the greater length of its banks.
As leading international consultants in the specialist sphere of environmental water management, Kingcombe Aquacare are looking forward to exhibiting at the Wod-Kan Fair in Poland from Tuesday 26, May to Thursday, 28 May. Please click through to see more details in English and Polish.
