The Wonderful Witham

In 2014 we commissioned Jack Perks, a specialist underwater wildlife filmmaker and photographer, to create a snapshot of the Witham Catchment. We wanted to capture the diversity of species, user groups and organisations working and living in the catchment – and what makes the Witham so ‘Wonderful’, or what needs to be done to make it so!

We spent three days with Jack filming around our lovely catchment. You can read his BBC Wildlife blog to see what he thought of the Witham! Then we premiered the film in Grantham, Lincoln, Sleaford and Boston. Don’t worry if you missed it though you can watch it whenever you like right on this very page:

If you would like us to give a presentation about our work and to show our film at your group meeting or event please get in touch.  We can rpovide talks and film screenings locally for a smal donation towards our work.


Jack is also available for talks and workshops, please contact him for current rates:
