We prove, in this paper, a long time existence result for a modified Boussinesq-Peregrine equation in dimension $1$, describing the motion of Water Waves in shallow water, in the case of a non flat bottom. More precisely, the dimensionless equations depend strongly on three parameters $\epsilon,\mu,\beta$ measuring the amplitude of the waves, the shallowness and the amplitude of the bathymetric variations, respectively. For the Boussinesq-Peregrine model, one has small amplitude variations ($\epsilon = O(\mu)$). We first give a local existence result for the original Boussinesq Peregrine equation as derived by Boussinesq ([9], [8]) and Peregrine ([22]) in all dimensions. We then introduce a new model which has formally the same precision as the Boussinesq-Peregrine equation, and give a local existence result in all dimensions. We finally prove a local existence result on a time interval of size $\frac{1}{\epsilon}$ in dimension $1$ for this new equation, without any assumption on the smallness of the bathymetry $\beta$, which is an improvement of the long time existence result for the Boussinesq systems in the case of flat bottom ($\beta=0$) by [24].
