Gateway to the East

The River Yar is the dominant feature of the East Wight landscape. Clustered along its 25km length are vital services including water supply, food production, transport, recreation and wildlife conservation. This central role has led to major changes in the River's condition. Now the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are leading work to address some of the most pressing of these issues including:

  • improving opportunities for fish migration by removing man-made barriers;

  • reconnecting the River with its natural floodplain;

  • improving natural river flow.
