IMPORTANT – Following an outbreak of Carp Herpes Virus (KHV) at one of our waters in 2021, it is very important that members fishing here (and at our other still water pools) use the disinfectant net dip tanks now provided. These must be used before and after fishing. Drying wet nets/unhooking mats at home after use (in the open air and preferably in full sunshine) is a further good precaution against unwittingly passing on this nasty disease to other places.
Betton Pool is an established pool that may be well known to some anglers local to Market Drayton, as another angling club used to hold the lease before its transfer to HAC in 2021.
It is a mixed fishery; with roach, perch, skimmers and a few carp.
The map shows its location:
How to get there, and parking:
From Market Drayton take Maer Lane past the entrance to Morrison’s/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, with parking in the layby adjacent.
