NOTICE TO MARINERS
RIVER RIBBLE – PRESTON
RSPB HESKETH OUT MARSH

.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds intends to
undertake works at Hesketh Out Marsh. The position of
these works closest to the main river channel are at
53.43.304N, 02.52.301W.

.
Works will take place during the week commencing 5th July
2021 for a period of up to 6 weeks on land approximately
875m south of the Ribble Navigation channel at its closest
point.

.

The works will consist of the restorative dredging of
two existing lengths of ditch together with the creation of a
new length of ditch to connect the two existing ditch ends,
thereby creating a ‘moat’ around an area of saltmarsh. Two
plans accompany this notice for clarity of the working area.
A further Notice to Mariners will be issued when these
works have been completed.
