Here’s some Parkgate Marshy facts:
Parkgate was an important port from the start of the eighteenth century, in particular as an embarkation point for Ireland.
As the Dee began to silt up, Parkgate became unusable as a port and was superseded by the Port of Liverpool.
During World War 2 small lights were placed on the marsh to trick the German bombers into thinking settlements were below.
During seasonal high tides the water reaches the sea wall, and visitors arrive at the village to witness the unusual sight.
Bird watchers also come at this time to watch the birds usually hidden in the grasses of the marshland
