Approaches

Ladyham: From A449 take any of the roads signed Sytchampton and follow the lanes as shown, or from A4025 take the road signed Golf Club and again follow the plan. Look for BAA Access signs to river.

If you are travelling north on the A449 turn left into Woodfield Lane (signed), you will come to a T junction, turn right and continue along (still Woodfield Lane), continue along into Boreley Lane and you arrive at a T junction opposite which is the entrance to a track through a wood. Follow the track (careful of gully on left) which takes you down hill where you arrive at a gate to a field. Cross field (closing gate after you) to river.

Vehicles may be driven along the river bank when conditions allow.

NIGHT FISHING BY PERMIT ONLY.
