The Milfield Plain - the largest alluvial basin in the North East.

Working with the Glendale Gateway Trust, photographic artist Jose Snook and naturalist Geoff Sample will be leading the project Where the Waters Meet to introduce locals and visitors to the characteristic wildlife of this sheltered lowland area.

Geoff says: “I’ve been recording wildlife and soundscapes in the Till valley for the last 20 years, as well as fishing the river, and I have to say it’s one of the most beautiful rivers in the country. It’s really exciting to have this opportunity to share my knowledge and love of the river with others; and to learn more from the various experts in their field that we’ll be bringing in.”
