The Portland fishery is located just outside the village of Sibthorpe.
Ignore the two turnings signposted to Sibthorpe. About 500 metres after the second signpost take a left turn up the unmade road – the entrance is post and rail fenced with a metal barrier. Continue up the road between the fishing lakes and the car park and clubhouse will then come into view.
From the direction of Shelton:
Turn towards Flintham and, before reaching the crossroads at the bottom of the hill, take a right turn just after the woods and turn up the unmade road – the entrance is post and rail fenced with a metal barrier. Continue up the road between the fishing lakes and the car park and clubhouse will then come into view.
