An Evening With The River Mel

Inspired by the River Mel, which rises in Melbourn, poet Clare Crossman wrote nine poems capturing the essence of our beautiful chalk stream.

She then linked up with film maker James Murray White to make a film about the river based on her poems. Further filming has been carried out by Nigel Kinnings who has also edited the film. More details about the project can be found at

After a year of capturing memories, interviewing residents, involving Meldreth primary school children and extensively filming, the film is now going to be shown in Meldreth.
