Off Channel entrace at StibbingtonThe Nene Welland and Witham consultative discussed the possibility of creating a habitat rich backwater on the Nene at Stibbington for a number of years. In 2014 Deeping St James AC worked up a scheme not only to provide off channel winter refuge, but also to provide excellent angling access into what became a 28 peg natural venue on the Nene.

The scheme jointly funded by the EA and Deeping St James AC has shown what can be achieved in partnership.
