Description: 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. In this photo Ruth Hussey, author of Rattray Marsh: Then and Now, leads a group of visitors at the opening of the Marsh in 1975.
