Clapper Marshes

These man made pools and wetlands were created by the Environment Agency as part of the flood alleviation schemes for Wadebridge and Sladesbridge. Located near Sladesbridge at Clapper, the area was originally created as fresh waters pools but recently a sluice has been fitted and now floods on Spring or other high tides.
