Hi and welcome to the"Access All Areas" blog "Out And About With John"
“Access All Areas” aims to be the place to come to to find out about the favourite venues for those people with mobility problems.
If you need use of a wheel chair or have problems with distance and need to park close to a peg we will be endeavoring to find out the best places for you. The Blog which will update information about venues added as it is received. This information will then be collated and added to the system for easy access for all who need it.
John will be reporting back on all kinds of venues whether its 5 Acres at North Cave, White Acres in Cornwall or even Manor Farm in Essex he will endeavour to bring it to you.
It will feature our new grading system which will grade the facilities from Ok to Very Good using The Uk’s Environment Agencies recommendations as a bench mark.
Also included will be a few Holiday suggestions and competitions if they come available to us to post for you.
We hope this is going to be of some use to you.

The improvements have been completed on four pegs (33, 34, 35 and 36) to make them accessible to wheelchair anglers. Hopefully a couple of more pegs will be similarly improved, before the bridge, when current work on the flyover is completed. I must say Gordon Scaife of ERCC has done an excellent job, in fact more than I had anticipated. Parking is on the roadside and dropped kerbs have been provided leading onto a Tarmac path to the platform. …read more

Some of the larger stones quarried out of this venue where rumoured to go towards the building of the Withernsea Lighthouse. …read more
