Snetterton Gravel Pit, Norfolk

An ecology-led restoration of a mineral extraction ‘borrow pit’, providing sand and gravel for the dualling of the A11 trunk road from Attleborough to Roudham Heath.

Margins were profiled to create areas of both shallow and deeper water to ensure that the site could support a varied emergent flora and provide opportunity for water voles. The creations of embayments and crenulations also provided sheltered conditions for invertebrates and other wildlife.
