The owner has informed us he will not be renewing our lease when it expires on the 15th march 2021.This is not due to any issue with the club or its members. The owner feels he has reached a stage in his life when he needs to slow down. The venue will become private property again with no public access or day tickets.
This complex, consisting of a main lake of 6 acres or more and a smaller pond, we have taken on and is intended to replace the similar lake at Winter’s Lake, East Halton. Despite it’s large size the main lake is made up of numerous inlets and bays and is well worth exploring for the likely looking ‘Mr. Crabtree’ style pegs. Platforms are planned for three sides of the lake.The complex is owned and managed by John Fox, a previous owner of Barton Broads, so we can be sure he knows his business. The complex is in the process of being reclaimed from an overgrown and much neglected reed filled lake. Already the place is taking shape and looks to be a potential valuable asset to the club. Currently the lake contains some very decent tench, carp, and bream, and the club is introducing more roach, rudd, and chub this spring. To reach this fishery you need to head for Barrow Haven either via theA15 (North) and the B1206, or, from the West, via the A1077 through Barton. You then turn left, where signposted, for Barrow Haven, into Ferry Road and follow this until you take the first left after the mini roundabout into West Marsh Lane. Follow West Marsh Lane and you reach a level crossing with a gate. The entrance to the fishery, which is marked as a private road, is on the right immediately prior to the level crossing. The entrance is gated but should not be locked during the day. If it is locked you will be able to unlock the club’s combination lock. Please leave the gate closed but only lock it if it was locked when you arrived and as usual tumble the combination.
