There are two access points from the canal towpath over the ditch crossing a wooden bridge at the beginning of the wetland and a stone bridge at the middle east of the site. The towpath is well used by local people already with regular users frequenting the site as volunteers. We have gained a management access right of way over the towpath by deed from Newry and Mourne DC. The path is a permissive path. There are no public rights of way over the site itself.
