A three lake spring fed fishery on a landscaped 17 acre meadowland site near Mickel Trafford.
Stocked on a one out one in basis to maintain a stock density of 150 per acre this fishery has lots of fish. C & R is practiced by many anglers so fish have a chance to grow on which means there is always a chance of hooking into something fit, lean and special.
Permits prices are very resonable. There is a lodge where you can get hot and cold drinks, toilets, wash up and changing room facilities. There is also a large tackle shop.
The fishery looks like it would be suitable for some people with disabilities with the lodge and car park by a lake, flat grass land and well maintained banks
