At Padiham east Lancashire near the former power station the water of the River Calder flows over a weir. A salmon is attempting to jump up and continue its journey upstream.
The presence of salmon in the river is proof of the improved water quality which has been achieved thanks to the work of the Environment Agency. The mysterious ability of salmon to return from the Atlantic to their original spawning grounds is one of the wonders of nature.
