This larger venue is popular, not only with our club matches but also with the local public. Hosting a variety of woodland walks, scenic trails and providing homes to a multitude of wildlife it is no wonder that this natural attraction is a favourite among families and not just anglers. Please expect dogs, walkers and cyclists and plan accordingly.
The FisheryThe dam has 53 pegs with many hosting a range of natural features to fish up to. The fishery holds good stocks of quality Bream and Roach which make up the weights recorded yearly during the club matches. Good catches of 40lbs plus are certainly possible. Larger Pike and Perch are also present in plentiful numbers for anglers seeking a rewarding challenge.
HistoryThis dam is steeped in history. Perhaps the most recognisable attraction at the dam and surrounding area is the quaint boathouse built in the 1820’s by the Pilkington family who also owned the surrounding estate, including Kettlethorpe Hall.
