if you go into heysham village there,s a fair ly big car park and you can gain access by walking through to a slip-way. to the left of the slip-way are the rocks that make up the point. there is also a way to the point through the churchyard. read threads from prior posts and be carefull, you can get your feet wet. :g::unsure:

Throbshaw or Throbshire Point off Heysham Barrows is a good venue. It's a headland off Heysham Village, below the 12th century ruin of St.Patricks church......



Throbshaw point is the rocks jutting out into the sea......




You don't want to pick a tide any bigger than 8.6m, smaller if it's windy....



You can expect to catch some quality plaice from late march early april onwards......and bass! As well as the usual flounder. Lug/rag or cocktail for the plaice, peeler crab for the bass flounder.
