Bring the whole family to Old Amersham and learn about the minibeasts and fish that live in the clear waters of the River Misbourne – a globally rare chalk stream!

Come along and enjoy a chance to go chalk stream dipping; you might get a bit wet, so wear wellies or water shoes and suitable clothing. We’ll supply the nets and any other equipment you need.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. You remain responsible for supervising your own child(ren) at all times.


The closest postcode is HP7 0HL. Entrance to the Pay and Display car park is between the Tesco’s roundabout and the war memorial. Walk towards the back of the carpark and you will see the path to Church Mead on the left.

About Chilterns Chalk

The landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Chiltern Hills has been shaped by its underlying chalk bedrock – formed millions of years ago, but still having an impact today. Our Chilterns Chalk Festival celebrates this connection to our landscape, both ancient and modern.
