Although the water is low at the moment, it’s still possible to enjoy a sail. The site owners MSL have issued the following advice.

Hazardous Mud

  • Please note that at current low water levels there are now exposed large areas of deep and slippery mud
  • Risks of entrapment leading to possible hypothermia exist in many places
  • All visitors are required to stay on the tracks. Dogs must not be allowed to stray onto the mud or into the water
  • Water users must only go afloat at approved points and are not allowed to disembark at any other point
  • There are numerous mud banks – in the event of running aground do not attempt to leave your vessel – telephone for assistance
  • It will not be possible to pick people up by boat from some shores
  • Please look out for other people who may be in difficulty
  • Carry a phone at all times and record the Bewl Water assistance numbers


  • The concrete slipways have now ended due to low water levels
  • The fishing jetty will be dismantled and moved to the end of the slipway currently occupied by the grey rowing jetty
