This is one of the largest sized waters in the North West, it dates back to the 1700s when it was created to help keep the Sankey canal topped up with water.
In the heyday years it would be common for anglers to bag up on ton bags of bream, plans are currently underway to restock the venue and turn it back into one of the main silverfish venues in the country.
