Eighty-five percent of the world’s chalk streams – described by David Attenborough as “one of the rarest habitats on Earth”  -  are located in England, especially in SE England. 

Chalk streams such as the Sussex Ouse, are fed by aquifers in chalk hills yielding gin-clear water which can support an astonishing array of plants, insects, fish, birds and mammals.

But as well as being home to this rare ecosystem, the south-east of England is also a development hotspot. Increased water demand, to support rapid urban growth, is draining the lifeblood from many of our streams and rivers. This conflict between the demands of the developer and the effects on our watercourses is being particularly felt around Cambridge.

With Government ministers calling for an additional 250,00 homes to “super-charge Silicon Fen”, “Pure Clean Water” is a call to arms to end the paradigm of unfettered growth and to instead place much more emphasis on protecting and engaging with our natural world.
