Our Testimonials

Waveney Lower Yare & Lothingland Internal Drainage Board

“Barry Day and Sons have been maintaining 50 miles or so of watercourses for the Internal Drainage Board in the River Waveney district for the last 30 years.

This involves dredging of silt and clearance of excess vegetation  also repairs to banks, earthmoving and tree cutting as appropriate.

They do a good job for us with minimal supervision, mindful of the need to achieve effective Land Drainage whilst protecting the environment in accordance with Environment Agency guidelines.

We are very happy to recommend their services, whether it be for  ditching, dyking, pond construction/clearance or general excavator hire.”

“We have worked with Barry Day and Sons on our Suffolk Coast Nature reserves for nearly 10 years.

During this time they have always proved to be highly skilled and diligent contractors.

They have helped the RSPB deliver some iconic projects including the very popular Hollesley wetland, heathland restoration and elements of the new reedbeds at Snape.”

“Barry Day and Sons is a contractor we have used for many years, they understand the sensitive nature of habitat creation projects on our nature reserves as well as the regular dyke maintenance work and with little supervision always deliver an outstanding finish whether it’s a wetland creation or a heathland restoration task.”
