SJ2775 : A Channel in the Dee Marshes

near to Parkgate, Cheshire, Great Britain

A Channel in the Dee Marshes
A Channel in the Dee Marshes
A channel in the Dee Marshes near Denhall Quay. As the tide comes in these channels rapidly fill with water which then drains away as the tide ebbs, leaving these deep muddy inlets. It is only in midsummer when the spring tide which covers the marsh has long since dried out that these marshes can be walked upon with reasonable safety. To the left are the hills of North Wales, today hardly visible with the naked eye due to the haze and behind me sheep graze nearby. In the distance the white buildings of Parkgate can just be seen, strange to think that this was once a prominent port, the main mail route to Ireland, it is now popular with day-trippers who come for its famous icecream and shrimps.
