Committee Objectives

In 2017 the Committee decided to re-new all of the 26 pegs with robust steps and platforms, the task was completed by June 2018.

In 2018 the Society registered ownership and access with Land Registry and by the end of the 2019 season 9 new pegs were produced in the lock stream.

In 2020 the Society negotiated with the land owner and cleared a raised Car Park in the field with a ramp down to access the pegs in the winter months.

The current objective is to simply keep the pegs fishable all season.
