Members of the Yorkshire Derwent Partnership are involved in a wide range of different projects in the Derwent Catchment. We are also developing ideas for a range of future projects that could be delivered by the Partnership. More information will be available on these, as funding is obtained and projects start. Read on for information on our latest Partnership Project – the River Seph Project.

River Seph Project

The River Seph is a tributary of the River Rye in the north-west part of the catchment. A recent report by the Wild Trout Trust identified problems with sediments, fish passage and the management of trees and woody debris. Partnership members including Natural England, the Environment Agency, North York Moors National Park Authority, Forestry Commission and the East Yorkshire Rivers Trust, are delivering the project with funding from Defra’s Catchment Action Fund.  Further details
