I today have been in comunication with a very local to east Halton skitter landowner about some thing very different to fishing,he told that The bank will indeed be shut in 3 or 4 days time. for 6 months, he said more work was to folow this closure he had been told it could take two years before everything was finished..
Looks like it is finaly shutting :mellow: i was kind of hoping we may get this winter out of the way before they started, but no such luck.
Anyone going down please post when they see it is closed.

I went for a look at the work down the imingham wall, about 3 weeks back an irish lad was coming off the wall where the barrier used to be. he wound his window down and said it was still shut, i asked when it was to reopen he said end of september begining of october.
Never got a look at the work thats been done down there the ramp up onto the wall looked wider and as stated there was at that time no barrier, there probably will be one put there for obvious reasons once the work is finished.
Not sure how the defences are laid out, could help numbers down there perhaps. anyone been down got any pictures of the work at imingham recently? .

Fished East Halton, many moons ago, I can not remember the bay number we fished from, only there was a tall chimney behind us.

The other thing was it was a pea soup smog/fog all through our session, maybe my hook was not in the water, cos I blanked. :wacko:

Any alterations may just be for the good of fishing, we just have to wait and see.

Well folks it was still open this morning and there were 4 fellas down there fishing and enjoying the sunshine.

Looks like it could be closed soon though, the preparation work is well under way.

The stock yard half way down Winters road is ready.



The access road appears to be right by the ponds.





Even the stock yard at the wall itself is nearly complete.



There may be some good news though, it would on the face of it look like they are only planning to close the wall from around bay58 to the jetty at Killingholme , only time will tell..............:marinheir

Well that took a little longer than the four days the local farmer told me it would be before it shutt.
Still the end result is the same i supose. still the imingham wall opens up end of this month, so guess thats not all bad news.
