Season Permits Introduced for Lakes

For 2014 a catch and release season permit is being introduced for Witton Castle Lakes at a cost of £375 for the season. There will be no restriction on the number of visits per week subject to the standard rules applying. Even based on one visit a week this would make a saving of £200 over the season which we believe offers exceptional value for our regular anglers.
