Hillview Lakes offers a total of five acres of water on an eight acre site. The two lakes and four canals are set in attractive countryside with an abundance of wildlife on and around them. Owner Keith Hill dug the first lakes, Moorhen and Heron, in 1990, started work on Canals One and Two eight years later to cater for the increasing demand for match angling, and dug Canals Three and Four in 2000.
It is popular with experienced and inexperienced anglers and novices as well as families looking for a pleasant day out by the waterside where they can be sure of catching plenty of fish.
Pleasure anglers and those after the bigger carp will probably opt to fish Moorhen or Heron lakes, both of which are rectangular in shape with central islands. Moorhen has plenty of bankside vegetation with yellow irises which flower in late spring whilst both have other clumps which provide cover - useful for those who want to fish close in by the side where the fish patrol in summer.
Many pegs on the fishery are also suitable for disabled anglers who should drive to the far end of the car park where they can leave their vehicles on the same level as the lakes. Although the Canals will be more of a struggle for disabled anglers to reach, they should be able to find plenty of suitable pegs on Moorhen and Heron.
