It is a very old and mature clay pit, surrounded by trees. Run by HUll and District Anglers Association.
Brickyard Pond holds some excellent fish stocks. There are Tench over 6lb, Bream over 12lb, Roach and Rudd over 1 3/4lb, Carp over 35lb and Pike over 20lb (a 34lb Pike was caught in 1930's). In addition there are numerous small Perch and Eels.
Depths fall off quickly from the margins and are generally between 10 and 15ft. There are two sunken roads, about 10ft wide, created during the excavation of the clay, which have little or no silt on them. They are around 7ft below the surface. There are also some clay features and bars in the second pond.
