The Society waters are:

 

Many miles of the river Adur from the fence just above Stretham Bridge (below Henfield) upstream to the road bridge at Wineham. On the western arm of the river we fish from The Fork at Henfield right through to Lock Estate at Partridge Green. We have access to most sections, some both banks.

 

We also fish some of Chess Brook and the Honeybridge Stream which run into the Adur at Betley Bridge; and above Bines Bridge, respectively.

 

A lake at mannings heath (Forest Farm)

 

Two ponds called Batts Pond 'Henfield' and West Town Farm Pond nr Hurstpierpoint.

 

We have acquired exclusive access to a lovely, well-established, large lake. This is at St.George's, Ditchling Common, East Sussex. It contains most species of coarse fish including double-figure carp, bream, perch to over 3lb, roach, rudd and gudgeon.

 

There is a convenient large carpark and a loo on site. It is in a very quiet, peaceful location. As it is fairly new to us, we have yet to establish exactly what it holds and we are sure there will be pleasant surprises to come."

 

 

Exchange Permits:

 

We have an exchange permit scheme with quite a few clubs as follows:

 

Pulborough, Haywards Heath, Tonbridge, Billingshurst, Slaugham, Worthing, Hassocks, Horsham, Rudgwick, Crawley A.S.

 

The exchange permits are held by Dave Simmons at Henfield, 01273 493396 and Burgess Hill Angling Centre.

 

Clubs have different start and finish dates for their season, If you fancy using a particular exchange permit contact Dave to check that we have their current year permit.

 

Access to Sakeham Farm is through Sake Ride Lane off the B2116 Wheatsheaf Road, north of Henfield.

 

As you drive down Sake Ride Lane follow the signs via a right turn to Sakeham Farm. Do not drive through Fieldlands Farm. At all times be aware of free range cattle & horses.

 

On arriving at the farm you will see that there is a residential srea comprising of at least 9 dwellings, turn right and drive past a large green barn to the river.

 

Follow the country code and leave all gates as you find them.

 

Parking: at all times display your club parking disc (found on the inside back page of your membership book)

 

There is parking for about 5 cars in a compound close to the river, look for club sign on the fence. When this area is full you may park apposite and adjacent to the green barn, but NOT in the residential area.

 

When parking leave space for large agricultural vehicles and trailers to pass.

 

 

The boundary,downstream, is the concrete weir & EA metering station, upstream, is the EA`s automatic dam & footbridge.

The parking area is approx half way between the boundary's.

This gives us continuious fishing from Mockbridge through to Wineham Bridge.
