Long Preston Floodplain Project - walk
and talk Thur 11th Jun, Wigglesworth
An illustrated talk and walk by
Dave Tayler (Yorkshire Dales
Millennium Trust) and Adrian
Shepherd (Floodplain Project
Officer) on Thursday 11th June
2015 at 6.30 pm at Clark’s Old
School, Wigglesworth
At Long Preston, the River Ribble still
floods naturally every year over the
adjacent land, which is of national
importance for its wildlife. It is also of
particular archaeological interest. For the
last 10 years, this area has been home to
an exciting and forward-thinking project
which aims to boost both its conservation
and its economic value through working
with local landowners, farmers and other
After a short introduction to the area and
the project, Dave and Adrian will lead us on
to the site as far as the new bird hide.
Although this is a short walk, it includes
one stile. Please brings waterproofs and
stout shoes/boots (waders not necessary!)
Refreshments available, FREE TALK donations welcome to the Friends of
Members and non-members
