Unfortunately we have had to cancel this Saturday’s planned Country Sports Experience at Witton Castle Lakes. Overnight rains have added to the existing standing water and has made the ground unsuitable for car parking and not safe for visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope people will understand our situation. The event will be moved to a future date which we will announce soon.
