Sadly once again we have had to close the gate to Barkers...
Ashley refered to some inconsiderate parking the other day snd this has led toi parts of the new track being impassible ... so for the foreseeable future the gate will remain closed. this weekends work party will be improving the car park by the Sluice gate (washing machine) so there are secure and relatively dry places to park!

Work Party Update: Sorry its a bit late this week but Saturday's time was spent at Ringstead. New platform style swims are being considered for Mill Cotton & the trial kit had arrived & was being drilled pre assembly for a test install. Digger & dumper work was too move more stone to Barkers to enlarge the first parking area. Unfortunately anglers are still parking on the grass even in the current state & cutting the ground up. Please be prepared to walk to your peg at present from a car parking area & use some common sense or we will have no choice but to unfortunately close the main gate to protect the ground until it dries out. Also, the club won't be pulling any stuck cars off of grass verges. It is up to the angler to arrange for that without damaging the bank even more. If they choose to park on grass in a bog then they can get out of it as well. We will be charging for materials to repair any excessive rutting of the ground as there is no need for it. Hundreds of pounds in materials & hours of volunteers time have been spent repairing tracks & providing extra car parks to fish Barkers & the river & all we are asking of the anglers is to be respectful of this & maybe have to walk less than 50 yards to where they want to fish.
Please think of where you are parking...
