ribble-oneGeneral Information

At Church Deeps, care is needed while accessing fishing pegs due to the steepness of the river bank. It is recommended that anglers travel light. Water levels are affected by the larger tides which raises the River by several feet so caution must be taken. Parking is on the road.

There is parking at Ribbleside Farm where the farmer charges £2.00 per day. Access is via the small lane on the left at the top of the hill where Cuerdale Lane starts - from Preston.
