St. Modwen Homes is proud to announce the completion of a brand new river channel, which has forever changed the course of the River Trent in Stoke.
Running alongside the award-winning Victoria Park housing development, this former brown-field site used to be known as one of the worst parts of the River Trent. After two years of major diversion works, the flow of the river has been improved so greatly that a variety of fish and animals will benefit from ease of access and enhanced habitats.
Redevelopment of the surrounding area is also well underway. Much needed public open space and sports pitches for the nearby school, the Stoke Minster C E A Primary School, are currently being constructed. In addition, public footpaths will be unveiled so visitors can check out the new river for themselves.
