We have made the difficult decision to suspend fishing and parking at Arlington following the latest Government announcement regarding COVID-19.

As you will be aware, the Government has ordered that everyone stay at home unless travelling to buy essentials, medical supplies or to perform one form of exercise.

While we know the fishery offers a healthy activity, we must protect the public and our workforce from the spread of coronavirus.

The footpath at Arlington Reservoir will remain open for walkers and runners although we must urge anyone using the pathway to maintain a distance of two meters (6ft) apart at all times.

Our on-site car park will also be closed until further notice. We will be in contact with customers who have purchased season tickets to discuss the temporary suspension in more detail.

We apologise for any disruption this may cause but hope you understand why these measures have been put in place.
