The River Windrush at Sherborne

The map above indicates a rough track leading off the lane at the top of the hill (Grid reference SP176152). Drive down through the fields through two gates to reach the CFF car park. The beat has been extended for the 2018 season with fishing on the Windrush now available as far downstream as Windrush Mill. 

Please note that members should access the new beat via the existing access; namely, that adjacent to the confluence of the Sherborne Brook and the Windrush. There is no access from the downstream end of the extended beat.
