Full directions to the lake:

SHOTWICK LAKE SAILING, Deeside, North Wales, uses SHOTWICK LAKE which is on the Dee marshes close to the new bridge over the River Dee,  the Tata Steel plant and UPM Kymmene Shotton Paper.

From the A550, take the exit  signposted to Flint (A548) and the Industrial Park. Carry on straight on this road (dual carriageway) to the third traffic island (the last before the new Flintshire Bridge) where you bear left   (signposted Sealand Ranges and  Zone 4). (If approaching from the Flint direction on the A548, cross the new Flintshire Bridge then at the first roundabout turn right, signposted Sealand Ranges and  Zone 4). After about 100 yards turn left which takes you in front of the UPM Kymmene Shotton Paper Mill . Pass the entrance for the Shotton Paper Mill and continue to a  small ‘T’ junction.

Turn left and in about 100 yards you will see a yellow barrier. Continue on under the A548 flyover then bear right under a low railway bridge (11’6″) and then follow the lane to the left to reach the sailing club compound.

We very much look forward to seeing you on 20th May.
