We all need to do our best



Boston Spa is known for its beautiful River Wharfe and walks along its banks. However, like a lot of rivers in the UK, they have their problems. We’re therefore trying to highlight the problems and promote the solutions.

We’re also collaborating with other communities along the River Wharfe to work with the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water to restore the river so that it is fit for swimming and wildlife.


As reported in the Guardian in January 2020, campaigners in Ilkley have applied for the River Wharfe to be granted bathing water status.

Hopefully a catalyst to improve our rivers

Rivers with bathing water status in UK and Europe:

  • UK 0
  • Germany 38
  • Italy 73
  • France 573
