'The Ribble Basin, located in the North West of England, includes all of the land that drains into the Ribble Estuary. This includes five main rivers and all their tributaries (the Ribble, Hodder, Calder, Darwen, and Douglas) and the Crossens drainage system. The River Ribble rises in the Pennines in the Yorkshire Dales at the confluence of Gayle Beck and Cam Beck. It flows east 100km before running into the Irish Sea. It is one of the longest rivers in the North West, draining a catchment of 2128 km2 (860 miles2) and covering a distance of 110 km from source to sea.'
