River Ouse at Hamsey

The gate to the cows field was locked last year after crops were damaged by the cows when the gate was left open. To prevent the cows escaping as members come and go from the river, the owner has made a corral with two gates. Use one gate at a time as you pass through the corral, never have both gates open at the same time.

Members may park sensibly in the corral without blocking either gate, or park by the river as before. Be aware the cows often take an interest in cars parked in their field by licking and rubbing against them. Cars are parked at owners own risk.

Flintstones Access

Access to lake and river at Flintstones is from the car park only and not through or over fencing. No cars to be parked on the side of the road especially at the bridge near the river. The entrance gate may have an electronic lock, but it does not close itself. Please remember to close the gate. Thank you.

Hooked Dog

One of the dogs at Flintstones was found by the owner with a hook inside its mouth with line and weights attached. Due to the owners quick actions he was able to remove the hook without any damage to his dog. As you will appreciate this is very embarrassing for us as it is more than likely that the line was left behind by a club member. On the day the incident occurred, Sunday 9 July, there were four people fishing the lake.

Fortunately we have a good relationship with the owner of Flintstones Manor and we do not wish this to be spoilt by the irresponsible actions of a member.

Please do not leave any discarded tackle at any of our waters and the owner has also asked members not to feed his dogs.

Vehicles are parked at the drivers risk - even in designated parking areas. Thefts from and damage to vehicles are not the responsibility of the Club. Horses and cattle will cause damage to vehicles so take extra care when parking on working farms etc.

Close the Gate

All members visiting Wildings must ensure the gate at the top of the field is kept closed at ALL times.

If you find the gate open, close it, day or night, rain or shine, come hell or high water just close the gate. Don't assume the farmer wants it open, don't leave it open for your mate, don't ask someone to leave it open for you, don't leave it open for "a few minutes".

So to be clear, open the gate, go through, then CLOSE, SHUT, FASTEN, BOLT, SECURE the gate after you EVERY SINGLE TIME.

The owner has also reported that pen fencing has been tampered with, just leave it alone.
