A professional photographer is leading a free walking tour along unique Buckinghamshire river habitat this weekend.

Photographer Matt Writtle with 30 years of photography experience hosts a free walk exploring River Chess on Saturday October 15.

With support from Chesham Museum, the two-hour walk is set to start from Lowndes Park by the zebra crossing at St Mary’s Way at 2pm. 

Mr Writtle said: “This walk enables me to showcase and describe areas surrounding the River Chess in Chesham that many people pass on a daily basis, but may not have historical and environmental knowledge of.

“The River Chess is one of nine chalk streams in the Chilterns, and many believe to be the crown jewel.

Walking along the downstream course of the “beautiful, yet fragile” river helps people to appreciate “how inspiring and delicate it is,” he said.

He added: “Chalk streams are the canaries in the cage when it comes to the UK eco-system and it’s imperative we all do what we can to protect them.”
