No cars in Hatchmill please and do not obstruct access to the property. Please keep dogs on leads as poultry are often on the footpath leading through the yard and beyond.

The upper section of the beat is accessed from the first field gate on your left walking back up the hill from the car park. An alternative route is via a steep path through the wood. The access to the path is just above the car park but is often obscured by summer growth. Please take extreme care if using this route as the path is very steep and slippery. It is impossible to pass directly from Hatch Mill Pool to Anderton Weir and vice versa, with any safety, and all members are advised to make the short detour described above.
