Entrance to canal and Southfield reservoir.
As of 24th June 2008 the club, as a member of the Joint Canal committee, has access to about 11 ½ miles of this canal. There are numerous points of access from the Heck Bridge south of the village of Great Heck; Pollington Bridge; Crowcroft Bridge; Beavers Bridge (turn west off the A614 north of the canal; Newbridge on the A614 itself; Rawcliffe Bridge; and from Rawcliffe Bridge village (turn west near the Rawcliffe Bridge hotel and follow the road to the north bank of the canal. This is a large working canal which runs to an average of 12 feet in depth. Feeder or pole tactics can work on their day with maggot or pinkie fairing well at 9 to 11 metres, or chopped worm closer in.
