Bempton Code Of Conduct

            The Above picture shows recent thoughtless damage to the cliff top at RSPB Bempton. Filey Brigg Angling society and Bridlington Sea Angling club do not condone this!
Strictly no fishing from the cliff-top from 1st March to 30th September
This code of conduct applies to 3.4 miles of cliff top between Speeton Cliffs (TA160750) and North Dyke (TA213733), and includes the  RSPB Bempton Cliffs Reserve
 which forms part of the
Flamborough and Filey Coast proposed Special Protection Area (pSPA).
The pSPA is subject to legal protection because of the internationally important populations of breeding Gannet, Kittiwake, Guillemot and Razorbill.
All seabirds are protected under The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000).
Fishing from the cliff-top is permitted from 1st October to 28th / 29th February
No fishing from RSPB viewpoints when the RSPB Visitor Centre is open.
If you cross the fence line, you do so entirely at your own risk. The cliffs are dangerous and
there is a serious risk of slipping and falling which could result in serious injury or death.
The use of ropes to access the beach is not authorised or approved by the landowner.
No new ropes must be fixed or used under any circumstances to access the beach.
The landowner accepts no liability whatsoever for any existing ropes affixed for this, or any other
purpose, or for any accident or injury which may arise from the use of any ropes affixed to our land. Such ropes are used entirely at your own risk.
Be considerate to other visitors and do not cross the fence at New Roll Up if families are present
on the viewpoint. Children must be accompanied at all times.
All fishing tackle and litter to be removed from site.
Strictly no vehicles on the cliff top without landowner’s consent.
Ensure your safety and that of others at all times.
Tackle to comprise minimum 30lb BS mainline: terminal tackle to incorporate a rotten bottom
and a minimum 50lb BS leader to be used with any means of casting.
This code of conduct has been agreed by local angling clubs*, the RSPB and Natural England.

All Angling that takes place is agreed through the compliance of these codes – please respect this
