This excellent little fishery was purchased by the SYP Sports & Social Club in 2013 from the landowner and local farmer David Thorlby. SYPAC had been leasing the fishing rights on the water since 1999.
Within the urban fringe of Worksop it lies on the boundary of South Yorkshire & North Nottinghamshire. Formerly a sand quarry it is deep and the 12 fishing pegs are accessed by either a reasonably steep path or steps, so it may not be suitable for those not too good on their feet.
A mixed fishery it holds a good head of silver fish, including a few barbel, and carp in the high doubles. Shoals of rudd can be seen on the summer months feeding on the surface and provide excellent sport for the younger members ‘a bite a cast’.
Its sheltered position enables comfortable fishing all year round. The water is secured by two locked gates and there is ample car parking for members both on the car park inside the second locked gate and on the access road also secured by the first locked gate. There is a portable chemical toilet onsite each year from the end of May to mid September.
As the pond only has 12 pegs members are only permitted to take one guest at any time with them.
