About us

Spring Lea has a series of six pools (at present one is under refurbishment) but all the others offer great day ticket/ match Carp and Coarse fishing.

The pools are well stocked with hard fighting Carp and a wide range of other species. This offers a range of angling to suit everyone from the experienced angler, who can set their sights on one of the 20lb plus carp, to beginners, children and those who are returning to angling after some years away.

For anglers with restricted mobility, your car can be brought right to the waters edge to drop off and collect equipment, but it must be returned to the main car park whilst fishing, allowing access for all other anglers. We have had many disabled anglers visit Spring Lea, if you have any special requirements or queries please don't hesitate to contact us.

Spring Lea is located 6 miles south west of Shrewsbury, between the villages of Hanwood and Pontesbury, in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, offering lovely views of the Shropshire hills.

Spring Lea is open all year from 7am till dusk (Except for Christmas day when we are closed).

Children under 16 years of age must be supervised at all times by an adult over the age of 21.

Charges are:

  • £8.00 for one rod.
  • £10.00 for two rods.
  • £6.00 for children up to the age of 14.
  • Tickets are payable on the bank.

Trevor Potter opened Spring Lea in 1991 with the first pool, The kingfisher and later on a second pool The Horseshoe. He added the Mallard Pool in 1994 and the Orfe Pool in 1996. In the summer of 2003 a fifth pool, Trevor’s Pool was opened.
