Nah I don’t think it’s stating the obvious. leylandii are considered cute quick growing plants, and are actually huge towering beasts.
anything that grows Is a pest if you just expected it to sit and be the same for eternity.
it's in an area which is the most Northerly set of swallets in the North Derbyshire area. Willow seems to be the most accepted method of erosion control, i guess its a bit better than a dead lump of wood which is guaranteed to rot or some metal which will become rusty.
so in terms of...
A friend of mine wants to start a local project, I hope great things will come of it. one of the main problems we can see is that the swallet has the potential to fill with mud (/sediment?) from the banks of the stream leading upto the swallet. having done some research, I've found a thing...
There’s a number on his website, I’m sure he would pick up. https://starlessriver.com/

Hi TT, not for Friday, but have been on a trip today. Had my car keys moved out of the cave. Briefly thought the worst, but was happy to be reunited with the keys to my dry clothes!
Foam on the far curtain, but same level as I’ve ever seen it, bit of an ear/face wetter.
I need to get down geology and through far curtain tomorrow evening. I want a second person on the trip and have not had a yes, so need to throw it out to a few more people.
If You know me, have been there before and want to tag along on a 2+hour trip please let me know.
