Alan Herd is a British artisan, a specialist woodworker and TV presenter of hobby and restoration projects often screened on Discovery Real Time TV channels.[1]

A native of Hickling, a village in south Nottinghamshire near to Melton Mowbray and the border with Leicestershire, Herd was concerned about the increasing flood risk across the world, and co-developed with Guernsey-based inventor Dr. Willy Johnson a defence system called Wata-Wall, a flexible barrage system of portable interlocking plastic containers which are assembled into an array then filled with water for stability, creating a temporary dam.[2][3]
