It was great this week to visit Panshanger Park to see the new walks and River Mimram improvements. It is an ideal environment for a range of flora and fauna. Chalk streams are rare – there are only about 35 such river systems in the World – so their plants and wildlife are special too. I hope the rest of the park will open soon. Here are two pictures showing the Mimram in full flow and a lake which it feeds. I hope the Mimram will soon flow as well further up towards Welwyn Garden City following the decisions to cut back abstraction on the Mimram and the Beane.
