Dear Friend of Alwoodley
As you may have read in our previous visitor newsletter, Alwoodley is due to replace the majority of it’s irrigation system this coming winter which includes new mainline pipe networks and new tees, greens & surrounds watering sprinklers. The new system will be managed by a variable speed pump station and a computer software based central control system. The total pipe used will equate to approximately 14km!
