Description: The Rattray Marsh is a protected natural conservation area, accessible from Meadow Wood Road (north of Orr Road) or through Jack Darling Memorial Park. In Wilmot's survey the marsh was originally called Cranberry Marsh. It was bought by Major James Rattray in 1945. After his death in 1959 various groups fought to save the marsh as a conservation area. The marsh with its shingle beach and water-rounded pieces of shale reveals the history of the land. Many fossils have been found here and many are still yet to be found. This photo was taken to give a feeling for how the marsh is used.
