We are pleased to be able to announce that we have just taken on Betton Pool, an established pool that may be well known to some anglers local to Market Drayton. It is a mixed fishery; roach, perch, skimmers and a few carp.

Our lease will run from 1st February 2021 until 31st of March 2022, and if all goes well will be renewed thereafter.

How to get there. From Market Drayton take Maer Lane past the entrance to Morrison’s and the Fire Station. Go over the canal at Victoria Coal Wharf and proceed for approx 1 km – passing the farm produce stall on the right and then a road junction (to Brownhills) on your left. The pool is then found on your right, parking in layby adjacent.

The gate code remains is 1813 until the new membership season starts on 1st April 2021, after which it will be changed – see your 2021-22 Clubcards. Note. To open lock when code put in there is a button on bottom of lock which must be pressed to open.

Note. The club that leased the pool before us was ‘Jubilee’. For the angling year ahead, past Jubilee members who wish to continue to fish Betton Pool can join Hodnet Angling Club without paying the normal £5 joining fee.
