    Construction work at Ponts Mill, a popular walking area within the Luxulyan Valley World Heritage Site, was brought forward and work started on site at the beginning of August. The historic river bank was due to be repaired later in the year as part of the StARR project, but leaks over the summer prompted swifter action to reduce flood risk.

    You can read more about this in the July 2020 StARR Project newsletter.
