The SHOTWICK LAKE SAILING, on
Deeside, North Wales, uses SHOTWICK LAKE which is on the Dee marshes
close to the new bridge over the River Dee, the Corus Colors steel
plant (British Steel) and 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 bridge) where you bear left (signposted
Sealand Ranges and Zone 4). After about 100 yards turn left which
takes you in front of Shotton Paper Mill. Pass the entrance for
Shotton Paper and continue to a small ‘T’ junction.
Take the left and in about 50 yards
you will see a red & white barrier. If there are no club members
around when you arrive and you have a mobile phone with you just
ring the club on 01244 280822 to let us know that you are there.
If the barrier is open you can
continue under the A548 flyover, bear right under a low railway
bridge (11'6") and then follow the lane to the left to reach the
sailing club compound.
