Now entering its 8th year, Misbourne River Action is a group of volunteers from the Misbourne Valley area who are putting time and effort into rescuing and cherishing the river. Our simple objective is to revive the River Misbourne so that it flows regularly from its source at Great Missenden to its confluence with the River Colne at Denham.
At regular intervals, working parties are tackling specific sections of the river, particularly between Amersham and Chalfont Park at Chalfont St Peter, alleviating problem areas and tending the river bed and margins. The group is also collecting photos and anecdotes of how the river was in days gone by, compiling a data repository and looking forward to future projects involving local schools and other organisations. We are also working with the Chiltern Society to promote a scheme for selective repairs to two damaged sections, and consulting with HS2, local councils and other organisations.
No special skill, ability or expertise is required - just a wish to see the river running properly again. If you would like to join us or to know more contact Bob Older by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel 01753 885131 or use the contact us page here.
