Is "The Wide" Disabled Friendly?
The terrain around the path side of the pool is quite flat however, those who need mobility aids such as wheel chairs may find it difficult. The pegs that are on "the houses" side are not accessible for those with mobility aids.
There have been some new eco-friendly and disabled friendly pegs installed as part of the first few pegs on the Wide Waters on the path side of the pool. Access to the pegs from the path is flat, and they are of good size.
All those fishing TAA waters are to assess their own capabilities before planning their journey to the pools.
