  7. Hi, was sure i asked the same question on here some years back ( cant find the post though ). Fished these ponds as a nipper back in the day and i am sure thy were known as the top, bottom and middle scalper ponds.and yes midland bank springs to mind as the previous owners, access was gained via ford bottom , turn right at the very bottom of ford road and straight on to the farm ( there was a pond there also , think owned by davy united. Turn left at the farm and walk to the first Pond ( bottom scalper ). Bear in mind this was 50 odd years ago so access has probably changed a few times. Used to love fishing these ponds although never saw owt big, just old fashioned wag and mag for owt that swam.beautiful surroundings and tranquil fishing. Let us know if you get to fish them , after all were all wednesday arnt we!

  12. Hi,does any one know who owns the land opposite morrisons ( halfway ) adjacent to the goods inwards entrance aand to the right of arnold laver. The reason i ask is the gennel that runs down to the industrial estste is now in very serious neglect. Yesterday i saw two rats in broad daylight rummaging in the dozens of fly tipped black bin liners that had been thrown from the street at the goods inwards entrance.this is now a very serious health hazard as the gennel is used frequently by the general public. If any one knows the owners i will make a very polite request for a general clean up and regular maintenance. Thanks
