River Running Dry

Emsworth owes its name to the river Ems now running dry according to a new environmental group. The group is set up to try and sustain the natural riparian habitat now in danger of loss due to alleged abstraction actives at times of low natural flow.

The Ems is a haven for protected wildlife and one of only about two hundred such chalk streams in the world. It flows through the South Downs National Park and Westbourne into Chichester Harbour, at Emsworth.
