    Walk the story of the River Don with Don Catchment Rivers Trust founder Chris Firth, MBE. During this circular walk along the riverside, Chris will take us on a historical tour of the River Don, explaining how organisations have worked together to restore a once-broken river. Discover how industry polluted, chopped-up and changed the river, blocking the path of migratory fish, such as the incredible Atlantic Salmon. Observe the crimpsall sluice rock ramp, especially designed to re-connect our fragmented river and help bring back the incredible Atlantic Salmon to the river Don.
