The Story of a River

Fri 15 Feb 2013

In his new book Silt Road – The Story of a Lost River, the author and conservationist Charles Rangeley-Wilson sets out to uncover the story of a river long lost underground. In an elegy to a disappearing natural world, he finds dreamers and visionaries, a chronicle of paradises lost or never found, men who shaped the land and its history. 

Charles Rangeley-Wilson is joined in conversation by the cult angling writer John Andrews for an afternoon musing on the delights of fishing, the allure of the river and the glories of the English landscape.
