Revive the Wye River project

This river project will be one of our largest and together with our partnership with Revive the Wye we will also be working in partnership with the Environment Agency, Thames Water, the Chilterns Conservation Board and Wycombe District Council.  River work will take place at various locations along the Wye from Hughenden to Bourne End as we continue to improve our internationally rare chalk stream. It will be a mixture of tasks, some of it in the river and some improving the river bank. All of it will make the river a better place and continue the process of extending and joining together ‘the good bits’, one of these days we may even make it all ‘good’.
