**Site Flood Warning - High Water Levels** Update

We have now closed the whole complex including the Guy Lakes Syndicate - We would expect the site to now be closed for at least a couple of weeks, but we will keep you all informed during that time.

**Site Flood Warning - High Water Levels** Update

We have now added Yeomans Lake to the list of waters currently shut.

The others are Brasenose 1&2, Hardwick/Smiths, Oxlease and Hunts Corner Lakes. They are not in major flood-flows but the waters levels are to high in the majority of swims to fish them safely.

As it stands Manor Farm, St. Johns, the Tackle Shop and two of the Guys Lakes are still open. The levels are slowly rising on these waters, but not as fast as in previous winter floods - We will regulatory monitor these waters and advise of any further closures with as much notice as possible.

Heavy rain is forecast tomorrow, so there is a good chance that the rest of the waters will have to close by earlier next week. We'll have a better idea once we see what rain actually arrives tomorrow - we'll then post another update.

**Site Flood Warning - High Water Levels** Update

Nothing new to report from Yesterday:
Due to high water levels around the site; Brasenose 1&2, Hardwick/Smiths, Oxlease and Hunts Corner Lakes are currently closed. They are not in major flood-flows but the waters levels are to high in the majority of swims to fish them safely.

As it stands Manor Farm, St. Johns and the Guys Lakes are still open. The levels are slowly rising on these waters, but not as fast as in previous winter floods - We will regulatory monitor these waters and advise of any further closures with as much notice as possible.

We hope to keep Guys, Manor Farm and St. Johns open over the weekend, however we now have heavy rain forecast for this Thursday, so we will have to wait and see how this affects things.

We definitely won't have the other lakes open until the end of the following week, at the earliest.

**Site Flood Warning - High Water Levels** 08:45am

Unfortunately yesterday's rain was a step too far for the site and in areas the fishery has started to flood. We are currently closing both Brasenose-Lakes and Hardwick/Smiths. Oxlease Lake has about 20 swims closed and there is a good chance we will close Hunts Corner Lake this afternoon. (Hunts Pond is already closed).

From previous experience with 'winter floods' we would expect Manor Farm Lake and St. Johns Pool to be closed by Tuesday along with the rest of Oxlease.

The Guy Lakes Syndicate is rising and I would expect a closure on these waters within the next two or three days.

We will post a further update later today and in the morning - but for now we advise that you do not travel to the site.
For those fishing local waters that are not flooded, the tackle shop will remain open.
