Deerness fish passes opened From The Northern Echo

 

TWO new fish passes have been opened, marking the half-way point of a three-year project to breathe life back into a river.

The Wear Rivers Trust has been working on the River Deerness, which flows past Esh Winning, Ushaw Moor and Langley Moor before joining the River Browney near Durham City.

Opening events were held last weekend in Ushaw Moor and Lion Mouth Rural Centre, near Esh Winning.

At Lion Mouth, Kevin Summerson, from the Environment Agency, said: “The Wear Rivers Trust has done a great job in building this fish pass across the bridge apron, which previously was a major barrier to migrating fish.”
