About us

Ribble Rivers Trust is a UK based charity working to improve, protect and promote the River Ribble for both people and wildlife.  We are based in Clitheroe, an ancient market town at the heart of the Ribble Valley, and work with the public and many organisations to deliver river improvements across the entire Ribble catchment.

our activities

There are four different factors we look at to decide how healthy a river is; water quality, water quantity, habitat health, and habitat connectivity. If there are any problems affecting these four factors we can work to resolve them, and make our rivers healthier.
