Frack Free Chew Valley is an independent group of Chew Valley citizens who are concerned about the possibility of unconventional gas exploration and development in the beautiful Chew Valley in Somerset, England.  The group aims to raise awareness in the Chew Valley about unconventional gas, including coalbed methane, shale gas and hydraulic fracturing, and the impacts they may have on our communities.  We want citizens, their representatives, businesses and land owners to have access to open, reliable and credible information about all aspects of the issues and how they may impact us. To contact Frack Free Chew Valley email frackfreechewvalley@gmail.com

Chew Valley Impression

“The Valley” is a place often referred to but rarely defined. Let’s take it literally as the valley of the River Chew from source, in Chewton Mendip, to mouth, in Keynsham. The valley occupies 147 square kilometres, of which 119 square kilometres (80%) is within the coal field, with only the high Mendips and parts of Winford outside.
