Remains of putcher ranks, Severn Estuary
Remains of putcher ranks, Severn Estuary
A putcher rank is formed from oak, larch or elm poles erected at right angles to the tidal flow out into the river. Putchers, funnel-shaped fishing baskets that were traditionally made from willow and hazel, were attached to the ranks in order to trap the salmon on the ebb tide.
