The oldest lake is more than 75 years old with all lakes having overhanging trees and many marginal features:

Most swims are accessible for the less able fisherman with car parking close by. stocked with Carp up to 25lb plus, Bream up to 11lb and bunches of Skimmers, Perch to 3lb, quality Roach and Rudd to 2lb, with night fishing allowed by appointment only.
Woodland Lake- is a well established 2 acre lake, with 31 swims, 6 of which are family sized which makes them ideal for pleasure or match fishing. It is stocked with Carp up to 20lb plus, Bream up to 6lb plus, quality Roach, Rudd and Perch up to 3lb. Green Tench up to 6lb and Yellow Tench up to 5lb, there are also Chubb, Skimmer, Bream and Grass carp up to 12lb plus. It also allows for the less able fisherman.
Hawthorn Pond- based on the Woodland site, is a 1/2 acre lake which is an ideal pole venue. Each swim features an island fishable at 11 meters. There are 10 swims, 5 of which are ideal for the less able fishermen. Stocked with carp up to 5lb, Bream up to 4lb, Tench up to 5lb and stacks of Roach, makes it a nice little lake to fish.
Chandos Lake- is a specimen carp lake which has recently undergone refurbishment and has now been extended to 3 acres with a maximum of 12 swims.

Open matches are run on Sundays on a fortnightly basis on Woodland and Wildmarsh lakes. Woodland lake has proved to be really successful. With 31 pegs it is a very even match lake with a winner coming from different pegs most times. Wildmarsh was refurbished recently and now boasts 75 pegs being ideal for big matches.

Best winter tactics include maggot over small amount of ground bait on the pole or waggler. Feeder fishing using a small ground bait feeder with maggot as hook bait. Best summer tactics incluse pellet, sweetcorn and meat for the bigger fish, fishing the margins or 10 metres out using method, pole or waggler.
