Safety signs erected at Roswell Pits

28th March 2013 | Warning Signs

Safety signs and fencing have been erected at a fishing site in Ely after concerns were raised about public welfare.

Ely Weekly News reported areas of Roswell Pits have been closed to the public as there are "serious" health and safety fears.

Deterioration of paths and other spaces on the northern side of the pits has led the Environment Agency to use safety signs that warn against entering the area.

A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: "We have fenced off the northern side and footpath of Roswell Pits for health and safety reasons. There are steep, often slippery, ground conditions leading straight into the water – posing serious risks for members of the public who walk along the bank and footpath.

“After careful consideration of all possible options to increase safety at the site, we agreed that preventing public access for the foreseeable future was the only affordable option.”

It is unclear when the paths might open again, unless funding is made available to repair damage in the area.

Roswell Pits is a nature reserve to the east of Ely. The area is a popular fishing spot.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801564134-ADNFCR
