Friday, 25 July 2008



Slippery rocks, strong currents and high cliffs.

Ladye Bay is up stream of Clevedon.

Small Flounder caught at low tide off the sand.

Park in Bay Road and walk to the steps on your left just off the start

of the double yellow lines.

At the bottom of the steps turn right and follow the path.

First point looking towards Clevedon

First point :- When the path turns right there is a gap to the left follow that

down and well! you can't miss it.

Second point /Ledges:- Continue along the main path, on leaving the wooded

part of the path a path to the left about 20 yards further on should be taken.

Next two photos show

About 2 hours before / after low water.

From the Ledges a cast of 40mtrs minimum is required to clear the rock fall

from the cliffs.

This venue can be found just east of the New Severn Bridge.
The tide can be fished from 3 hours before and after the high tide.
This is a very popular venue and during the Cod season parking spaces are very scarce,
so park safely and don't block the emergancy gates.
