Travellers In Swallowfield Church Car Park

Warning - Recent Traveller Visit Leaves River Banks a Mess


Following the recent visit by travellers to the Swallowfield Church car park, we would ask all members wanting to fish the top end of the River Blackwater around and above the Weir Pool area to excercise caution. The travellers have not only dumped their usual rubbish around the area but have been using the undergrowth as their toilet as well. Although these filthy people were only at the site for 24hrs before being moved on, the mess is still not pleasant. At the current time, the club has not had time to assess what course of action is required as far as cleaning up goes but once again we would recommend our members take particular care in this area especially where junior anglers are concerned.
