Park by St Mary The Virgin church in Church Lane

General description

Downstream of footbridge –  fish the left – hand bank, and upstream it’s the right – hand bank up to Robertsbridge.  Access is off of the Robertsbridge by-pass (A21) both to Salehurst and Robertsbridge.

‘Small river fishing.’ There is a small derelict weir at the footbridge. The river is fast flowing from the weir downstream, with lots of tree cover and ‘challenging’ swims! This is a water ideally suited to roving fishing, light tackle, single rod, and it is helpful to have a rope pegged to the bank top to aid access down to the river, which can be as much as 12 – 15 feet although upstream of the bridge there is much easier access to the (a little deeper)  river. A small sickle in the tackle bag can be very useful.
