Eden, Derwent and Kent win the 2016 UK River Prize

Thursday, April 28, 2016

The Rivers Eden, Derwent and Kent have won this year’s UK River Prize following an excellent demonstration of working in partnership to deliver improvements across three catchments, resulting in a healthier and better functioning river environment. After much deliberation the judges selected the overall winner of the 2016 UK River Prize as the combined Cumbria Rivers entry for the Rivers Eden, Derwent and Kent. The project partners were awarded the Nigel Holmes Trophy, named after a hugely influential and passionate river restoration and conservation advocate. They also receive £5,000 to go towards furthering the work on their rivers.
