During the summer and Autumn of 2019, the River Ribble trust installed a fish ladder round the weir on the Hyndburn brook in Rishton. This followed on from work carried out in 2017 at the weir in Clayton-Le-Moors, where another fish ladder was built.

The catchment area of the River Ribble covers over 571 square miles and supports large numbers of fish, mammals and invertebrates.

In the past, industrial and agricultural pollution as well as water abstraction and poor sewage treatment have caused severe habitat damage to the Ribble and its tributaries, to such an extent that the wildlife supported by the river had been put under threat.

 The Trust was established  to improve the water environments of the catchment, by restoring and protecting the river to make sure that future generations can enjoy the beauty of its wildlife and fauna.
