went into garry evans in the week and was told by clive ,that access through the lanes to access redwick ledges is almost impossible to drive down ,as the farmer has dug a nice big pot hole stopping even jeeps getting past , and as for magor the farmer has removed the cattle grid , so same there , i guess it was either people leaving the gate open letting the cattle go a muck or the rubbish factor ,,

got a nice long walk now thanks to some idiots

perhaps now that there is a bit of a walk the fishing may improve a bit as not so many people will go there cos of the walk thas jus a thoght as i find sker a very productive mark to fish an i dont see many people out there so who knows .. still sad realy that 2 more cod marks are slowly starting to be taken away from us cos of some inconsiderate danglers:uhuh:

Not surprising though, is it? Might have to use those legs now, people.

The lane down to Magor ledges has steadily got worse over the years and after last Winter's ice has probably got worse still.
Last time I went down there I put the tracking out on my car so when I fish there again I'll park near the sewage works and walk down.
It'll just mean packing lighter and allowing more time for the walk.
Redwick ledges are not too far to walk from the Rose pub but it depends on whether you're a salad dodger or not.

The lane from the "White Rose" pub down to the sea wall? If so it is a "Parish Rd" & is open to traffic, if it is overgrown or the surface has been damaged (either accidentally or deliberately) it is up to the Public Rights of Way team from Newport City Council to get it fixed PRONTO!:rtfm:
They had this problem with the farmer last year, & they got it sorted (I think the council cut the hedges & billed him) similar problem at Goldcliff where a farmer blocked the track. There was a member on here ( a good angler as well multi comp winner), who was in constant touch with the Council about access & they had real success in ****ing on the farmers chips. Ring the ROW team in the Council (probably the Planning Dept) & give them a "heads up" & let them sort it for you, they have "the clout", (& it might prevent you from getting one), because some of these farmers think that they own not only the land, but the law of the land as well, & it's good to remind them that they dont!

That seems like a bit of maintainance work then.

However Vic is correct, some farmers do block public access roads and footpaths. They can cause them problems that goes without saying but at the end of the day taking the law into their own hands is not the way to go.

as allready stated,the road down to sea wall at redwick is a public bridle way and farmer has no right to block it,he s just really awkward,the ***** locked gate whilst i was fishing one night a few years back,so i knocked him out of bed to open it at about 2 in morning,he wasnt very pleased to say the least.:cc_surren

The farmer down at Redwick has always been the same. Years ago he locked me in several times, so i got him up each time. He also kept the foot and mouth signs up long after the all clear was given, saying that people could bring disease in on their feet. He was then spotted in several newport nightclubs. A hypocrite and not a nice one.

Not true --both lanes are passable --Newport comp today everybody used the lanes without a problem --there have been a problems but they r sorted at the moment --- but there are some really big probs on the horizon which are being looked into.
PLEASE CLOSE ALL GATES (even if you find them open) and DONT LEAVE RUBBISH --these 2 issues are being used by the land owners as their main arguement ..
If you see fly tippers please take their registration numbers and contact Newport Council or pm me please .
Tightlines lads (and lasses)

the road to magor is very bumpy and when you go over the new cattle grid drive very slowed because it is sunk into the ground further than the old 1 my car scraped goin over it
