A RESERVOIR is being built at Sheeplands Farm in Wargrave.

It will takes water from the river in winter, which will be used to irrigate fruit crops in the summer.

Mark Bennett, managing director of W R Bennett, which runs the farm, says he has received numerous enquiries about machinery moving large amounts of earth on the site.

He said: “We started digging at the end of September and the project should be completed in November. Our plan is to sow grass seed on the banks and plant trees so as to lessen the impact on the landline.”
