Good news for those who enter Spade Oak via Coldmoorholme Lane

Thanks to Jeff and the council we have had a combination lock put onto the pedestrian gate. The code is the same as used on our other locks. For those of you who don’t know the code it is found on the back of your permit. 

Please remember to lock the gate back up after use as we don’t want to loose this access.

Please do not tamper with the kissing gate as this has now been repaired by the council.

Thank you

We have had a couple of complaints from the residents who live in the cottages regarding anglers being dropped off right by the lake, I would like to remind you that under NO circumstance are you allowed to be dropped of outside the cottages.
NO cars are to go past the service road, you must park or get dropped off in the car park show in your rule book.

If this continues we will loose the right to night fish this area and we don’t want that as we worked so hard to get that area back
