Water temperatures have now fallen to acceptable levels and we now feel able to re-open for fishing on Dons & Woodside Pools with stockings of new fish ready for the Bank Holiday weekend.
Marton Heath is a family run fishery where anglers can expect a friendly welcome on arrival at reception.
Whilst the fishery is man-made, great attention to conservation is evident, with trees, hedges and a wildflower plantings supplementing the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. There is always something interesting to see, as Pheasants, songbirds, waterfowl and a world of insects and butterflies, catch your attention whilst you fish.
Located in picturesque, rural, northeast Cheshire, we are half a mile down School Lane off the A34 at Marton, three miles north of Congleton and three miles south of Capesthorne Hall, or down Marton Lane off the A536 at Gawsworth.
Safe and secure parking is provided in the farmyard and disabled anglers may travel to the waters edge some 100 yards from the main car park.
Disabled Anglers - holding genuine blue badges may travel to a privileged car park much closer to the pools.
