Toms River | Reflections Of A River Keeper | Hampshire Avon | 1988

As any angler will testify, time spent in nature and in particular by water, is proven to have a positive therapeutic benefit for mental health and wellbeing. In this lovely, nostalgic film (recording quality aside) shot over 30 years ago, we follow river keeper Tom Williams as he reflects upon his time as a custodian of the Longford and Trafalgar stretches of the Hampshire Avon.

An enviable vocation and clearly a man so content with his natural workplace environment, he probable never felt as though he was ‘at work’ at all.
