River Nene walk inspired classical music

Composer Benjamin Till walked the entire length of the River Nene as inspiration for a new piece of music.

He completed the 112-mile (180km) journey in a week in December 2016, and the resulting composition was performed by a group of Northamptonshire musicians at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

You can watch more on this on BBC Inside Out in the East and afterwards on the BBC iPlayer.
