There was a proposal by one/some East Anglian local 'authorities' to
charge fishermen for angling from the beach and piers.

Did this proposal die a deserved death, or has the imposition crept in,
unobserved by me?

No idea, sorry.

They can probably charge for access to piers, quaysides and other built
structures but the foreshore, between the tides, is mostly Crown property
and so outside the local authority remit. There are a few places where
ownership and rights predate Magna Carta so charges *might* apply there.
Seawalls are built structures btw so perhaps that's what was meant?

Cheerio,

No, they (Eastern Daily Press) were talking about the beach too.

I shall have to bite the bullet and get a bus to Yarmouth and ask an
angler when the time's right.

As a wildfowler (Rtd.) I do know what the law of the foreshore *was*,
but I believe things have changed a little since the 1950s/60s.

Not a great deal aIui - perhaps the charge mooted was a toll for crossing
some stretch of dry land to get -to- the beach? We have several
toll-charging private roads/car-parks leading to otherwise free beaches down
here in Dorset.

Cheerio,

Cheerio,

Ah well, we shall see. I'm just preparing for the time they let me drive
again - for which I need a pacemaker. And there is no hurry - I have to
rebuild a motorcycle and hang a chair on it before I can think about
carrying all the gear (and the catch...).
