Help us keep the canal clean

After finishing your session, please take any excess bait or groundbait home with you. Please don't throw it in the hedgerow, as it can attract vermin and flies, which is unpleasant for anyone else using the area after you.

Similarly, do not throw excessive quantities of unused bait into the canal, as it can rot at the bottom.
