TitleRhynes, Rivers and Running Brooks
DescriptionFrom the mid 1990s to the mid 2000s, Common Ground conducted research and activity relating to rivers for its 'Rhynes, Rivers and and Running Brooks' project. The project aimed to encourage people to value running water in their localities and get involved in its conservation through publications, events, and exhibitions. As part of this programme of work, Common Ground also aspired to launch the project 'Thames Ballad' to help people in London to create an epic poem about the relationship between people and water in the city. However, this project never came to fruition. Much of the research for this project later fed into the 'Confluence' project [see EUL MS 416/PRO/13].

Material in this section of the archive include general project administration papers; papers relating to the 'Thames Ballad' project, including project proposals, notes, planning documents, correspondence, and press releases; papers relating to publications; papers relating to poetry competitions; and research material relating to rivers and water.

Access ConditionsPlease note that access to some files is restricted subject to Data Protection legislation. Access may only be provided on a case-by-case basis and upon completion of a Data Protection form.
ArrangementThe files in this section of the archive were originally kept together by Common Ground; however, they have been rearranged into series to reflect the different activities within the project and to provide contextual information for users. The original order within each file has been preserved. Duplicates have been removed and disposed of wherever possible within these files, but three examples of each document have been retained.

10 files of papers relating to the Rivers project (with no mention of Confluence within them) have been removed from the Confluence project papers (EUL MS 416/PRO/13) and catalogued with the Rhynes, Rivers and Running Brooks project papers.
