Dr Nigel Holmes 1949 – 2014

Many of you will already know that Nigel Holmes passed away last month. Nigel was an indispensable pillar of river conservation and restoration, a vital mentor and valued friend to many, a renowned author, and a devoted husband and father. He is sorely missed by all who knew him.

We share with you a lovely picture of Nigel taken by his colleague and friend Dr Paul Raven (with whom he co-authored Rivers), and Peter Marren’s full obituary, which can be read in The Independent at the link below.
