Ponds at Trowey

Recommended Posts

Spotted some ponds at Trowey near Coal Aston on Google maps. Anybody know who they belong too? I can't find any info except an old post from years ago saying they belonged to Midland Bank. Cheers

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!

Hi I enquired about these a few years ago, the top 3 smaller lakes are known as Dobholme fishery. Season ticket only mixed fishery, ring Dobholme farm for details. Looks lovely and quiet, think a tickets about £150.

The two larger dams are Skelper Ponds. Griffin Angling Club run by HSBC bank have got rights on these and unfortunately it's a no go unless you're a staff member of HSBC.
