Accessibility

There is gravel under foot for 200M from the car park to the jetty. Access to the craft is by slipway or jetty. You must step up or down (depending on water level) into the boat. You may need to move from side to side in the boat so you would need to be able to duck under the boom. Accessible parking available on site.
