'We recently installed ‘no fishing’ signage at Rectory Wood. The sign was quickly ripped down. It was then replaced, only to be taken a second time. Both incidents have been reported to the Police. If you have any information relating to these incidents please call 101 and use crime reference 40/41462/20. We have decided not to replace the sign immediately due to the likelihood of the theft being repeated for a third time, and further costs to the charity at what is already a difficult time.

Whether there is a physical ‘no fishing’ sign at Rectory Wood or not, fishing is not permitted at any time.'

There are a number of other places locally where you are permitted to fish - please check the relevant websites for further information regarding membership and/or permits.
