Thanks to the efforts of the the North Worcestershire Water Management Group who have cleaned and jetted the input gully we now have a small water feed again.

We think that more work may be needed but are hopeful now the gully is cleared, any heavy rain will wash remaining debris through. We may also have to “dam” the brook a little to provide a better head.

Many thanks to North Worcestershire Water Management Group.

The MMCG mounted a display at the Beoley Fete at St. Leonard’s Church on Saturday 2nd July.

The display was specially prepared for the event and traced “The Battle For Moons Moat” from its assumed creation through to current activities to create a 10 year management plan for the site.

In the 1960s it is reported that a Mr. E. Bomford gave permission for the Archaeological digs on the Moons Moat Site.  Nearby there is also Bomford Hill in Church Hill North.  But who was mr. E. Bomford?

So far our searches for information about him have revealed nothing.  Do you know anything about him and the ownership of Moons Moat prior to the Redditch Development Corporation taking over?

If so please contact us. See the contact page for details.
