Clatworthy Reservoir - temporary closure for improvements
We are pleased to confirm that planning permission has been granted and the improvement works at Clatworthy Picnic Area are scheduled to start on Monday 26 July and last around nine weeks. This work will improve accessibility and car parking, with new benches and a small play area also installed.
During this time the Picnic Area will be closed to the public and we apologise for any inconvenience. There will be no parking available on site for general visitors and therefore we ask people to visit one of our other reservoirs or alternative venues.
The Fishery will remain open during the works, but it will not be possible to walk from the lodge to the dam. We also ask anglers to take extra care when travelling to this site as there may be some construction traffic in the area.
