Greenwood Fishery

GreenWood Fishery and Nature Reserve


A tranquil water in a mature, natural wildlife haven in the rural heart of Cheshire.

Superb stocks - all coarse species.

An idyllic venue for all discerning anglers.


Set in eight acres of Cheshire heartland, is a privately owned, nonprofit making, rural regeneration project. All available income from the fishery is ploughed back into the management and upgrading of our fish stocks. We will be carrying out much maintenance and further development work to enhance the local environment. Providing a peaceful, caring, haven for wildlife and the conservation and improvement of our local countryside.


Not only anglers, but the public, in general, are welcome to visit on most days of the year, to enjoy a relaxing experience in natural surroundings - a veritable 'rural - oasis'. Work on this project continues nonstop throughout the year.


There is easy access from both the M56 and M6 motorways via the A49, with spacious on-site car parking. The fishery itself is a clear, healthy, Still Water Lake, ranging from 3 to 15 feet deep. Set in idyllic, well-wooded, mature surroundings with ancient water lilies, bulrushes with active water life and superb stock.


The total number of pegs is restricted to 34; most of them are widely spaced and have their own specially built access. With safety in mind (but keeping with the rural scene), there are wide pathways, handrails and purpose built stairways all round to provide safe access to the pegs. Other safety measures, including lifebelts, rescue boat and qualified First Aid is in place, as required under the Health and Safety acts (see onsite notice board).


 Disabled anglers, including wheelchair disabled are welcomed to use one of our five specially adapted facilities available. Parking from the disabled pegs is only 10 yards away with toilet facilities close to hand.


Day-ticket, night fishing (bivvying), long stay and angling holidays with on-site accommodation are catered for. A wide range of hot meals, snacks, soft drinks, sweets, ices and beverages are available at our fully equipped catering unit with barbecue facility. Available site services include include 230-volt electrical supply and drinking water.


We offer generous concessions to registered disabled, senior citizens and junior anglers. Club fishing matches are arranged throughout the year (see onsite notice board). Visitors including non-angling companions, friends and general sight seers are welcomed 'free of charge' during normal daytime open hours
