New car park at Aberbechan - UPDATE
Work is now completed on an additional car park and track at Aberbechan, the gated entrance is off the road opposite to the existing car park. A stoned track leads from the entrance along the meadow between the Severn and the canal, where the meadow narrows, the car park is located with a footpath to the river bank.
This gives additional car parking, with improved access to the upstream end of Aberbechan fishery plus the new fishery around Penarth Weir.
Thanks to local bailiffs Mike and Ann Wood for all the hard work in arranging the construction. The Fisheries Team visited on Wednesday 15th May and fitted gates to the new entrace, these are inset so that members can unlock and open them without blocking the road.
