Rapids on the River Mersey
Rapids on the River Mersey
The River Mersey was once one of the most polluted rivers in Europe. The Environment Agency agency, together with other organisations, has invested heavily in cleaning up the river. It is now so clean that it supports a whole range of wildlife including salmon and water birds like goosander which can be seen on this stretch of the river in winter.
