The Main Car Park
Parking in the Main Car Park
Note: The car park entrance has a height restriction of 6′ 4″ ( 1.9 metres).
The barrier on the entrance to the main car park is locked by combination padlock to prevent unauthorised entry. OBAS members can find the combination required to open this barrier on page 14 of their members handbook;
non-members will be provided with the combination when they buy a day ticket, which can be purchased on-line. Buy a day ticket.
To avoid disappointment, non-members should purchase a day ticket before setting out for the fishery. Anyone having difficulty buying a day ticket on-line should contact Howard, the Membership Secretary, on 07824569111.
Our Bailiffs regularly patrol our waters, and will require members to present their membership book, and
non-members their day ticket, or proof of purchase of a day ticket on their phone.
