We already have all lakes closed except Manor and St. Johns, but due to the continued increasing levels on these waters we have now taken the decision to close all lakes from 3pm, tomorrow the 24th of Dec.
We hope the excess water will pass through the site quickly but would image the day ticket and Guys Syndicate waters will remain closed for at least a week to ten days. We will update again after boxing day.

**Flooding Update** 22/12/19 11am

As of 2pm today all lakes (except Manor and St. Johns) will be closed due to high water levels, this includes the Guys Syndicate. Manor and St. Johns will stay open for the time being and we'll keep you updated on those two as the week progresses - however it is likely that they will also close sometime next week.
Apologies for having to close Christmas week, as I'm sure many of you were planning to come down after Boxing Day, just nothing we can do to stop the latest onset of flood water.
