Who Saved the Mersey?
With salmon now having returned to the River Mersey it is hard to believe that only a couple of decades ago it was virtually lifeless and essentially an open sewer. The Mersey Basin Campaign was set up in order to tackle the appalling state of the Mersey through innovative partnership working and local action. Now the Mersey Basin Campaign has come to the end of its 25 year lifespan and Matthew Sutcliffe takes the opportunity to talk to key people who have worked with the Campaign over the years and explores who killed the Mersey, who helped clean it up and was it worth it?

Case study: Hands-on History at Mersey Vale Nature Park
This case study is part of a specially written series focusing on our local action projects. They are designed to show you how some of our best projects were delivered. Each case study provides background information, examines the original project idea, methodology, funding information, looks at who was involved, and draws out lessons learned from the experience. We hope these case studies will prove useful and inspirational, especially for those delivering similar work. This case study focuses on the Hands-on History project at Mersey Vale Nature Park, Stockport. This was a day of hands-on heritage activities for schoolchildren at the park.
