 The fishery is located at Wood End Farm on Marsh Moss Lane, Burscough - the nearest recognisable landmark is New Lane railway station which is right next to it.  Access to the fishery is via a small gated slip road at the end of the car park used for the business units on the site.  Two car parks have been provided for our members to use, and these are clearly marked.  Please note that our members are not allowed to park in the business units car park.  We have fitted our Association lock to the gate which restricts access to parking for our members.
