Geographical Term Details

Wyre catchment

Definition (http://a0768b4a8a31e106d8b0-50dc802554eb38a24458b98ff72d550b.r19.cf3.rackcdn.com/genw0309bpjf-e-e.pdf)

The River Wyre catchment area extends from the high moorland of the Forest of Bowland fells in the upper, eastern part of the catchment to the lower lying central area and flat plains of the Fylde peninsular found adjacent to the Wyre estuary. The upper tributaries of the Wyre are steep, resulting in a rapid runoff response following rainfall. The watercourses within the Lower Wyre catchment are at a low elevation and sometimes at or below sea level. (EA)
