How much do we know about the area around us? What role do we each have to play in our local landscape? Who manages this landscape and its wildlife today and who did so in the past? How can we benefit from the 'environment' and the wildlife associated with it? Learning about our local cultural and natural heritage is central to these questions. In doing so, it does no harm to abadon administrative boundaries and consider the natural ones such as the river catchment. Ours is the Eye Brook.
