Estate maintenance plays an essential part in ensuring the clubs waters are kept to a very high standard. The Estates Team carry out a planned programme of work on a daily basis and are all volunteers. The Estates Maintenance fee of £80.00, referred to as an Overstamp payment, entitles the member to fish designated, premier club waters between 15th March to 15th June inclusive.
Those choosing not to pay the overstamp fee may still earn an overstamp by completing two, six hour work parties, this then allows the member to fish the premier club waters between 15th March to 15th June inclusive. Members who do not pay for an overstamp or do not complete the two, six hour work parties may not fish the premier club waters during this period but can still fish all other club waters designated as non-overstamp, a full list of waters can be found here.

Heading west along the M56, leave at junction 10. Follow the A49 towards Whitchurch. Continue along the A49 for approximately 1 mile and take a left turn onto Radell Lane, which is a 100m or so past Grimsditch Lane on the right. Continue along Radell Lane until you come to a row of house and a sharp left bend. At the start of the bend turn right and then after just 50m turn right again at the crossroads onto Village Lane. Drive past the school on the left and a small cemetery on the right. Just after the cemetery, on the right you will find the car park for Whitley Pool.
