Fish Legal - supporting anglers to protect fisheries

Newbury AA is a member of Fish Legal, the organisation which was set up to fight legally on behalf of anglers, against polluters and others who might damage the water environment. A link to their website has been provided at the top of the page. Please read about what they do, and consider joining them as further support.

Night Time Access to Rawlings Retreat and Widmead

To increase security in the area out of hours BBOWT have erected a gate in Muddy Lane, just off Lower Way before the entrance to the main Discovery Centre car park. They lock the gate each evening and re-open it each morning. The gate has been fitted with one of the NAA keyed locks which all members have a key to allow us 24-hour access. When you access the area if the gate is open please leave it open and if locked please lock the gate behind you. This has the benefit of giving our anglers night fishing extra security. This is how the mechanism looks when locked.
