Long Description:
The fishery consists of a small pond and an old pit reservoir. The pond is situated just inside the wood and is stream fed, the overflow water is then gravity fed by pipe into the reservoir on a lower level. Reservoir is quite narrow and shallower at the inlet end but widens out and deepens towards the dam wall. Waters are coarse mixed fisheries with pond holding smaller fish and the reservoir has a large head of big carp along with many other large species.
There are well made wooden stages (pegs) round the reservoir. Day tickets are available on the bank from the bailiffs, reservoir £5.00 per day and top pond £4.00 per day.
Entrance is from Woodhead Lane parking area with a loose white stone single lane roadway leading to a parking area for those fishing. This is near to the top pond with footpaths leading all round.
