Fishing is allowed dawn until dusk.
Tench, bream, roach, perch, gudgeon, carp.
Directions: From Rochdale, take the A671 towards Bacup. Travel through Whitworth to Shawforth. As you climb the hill leading up to Britannia, you will see a Mercedes’ garage on your right. Turn right immediately before the garage and follow the lane up behind the property with the white conservatory. Keep on along the top then until the first property you come to (on your left). Parking is difficult and you should not block the lane. You can drop your gear off and go back down the Lane to find parking. Go over the stile opposite the house and across the field to the water. Obviously, it will difficult to take a lot of gear due to the climbing, so fish light!
