Chalk rivers are beautiful and diverse places, but they are globally rare.

There are fewer than 200 chalk rivers in the world, and most of these are in southern England, with the rest in northern France. In England, chalk rock stretches in a diagonal band across the southern half of the country, running from Wiltshire and Hampshire across the Chilterns to East Anglia and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

FSC Chalk Rivers in England is a guide to the special insects, molluscs, mammals, fish and flowering plants that live in and around chalk streams and rivers. Text on the reverse side examines the global importance of English chalk streams.

Chalk Rivers in England was produced in partnership with Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
