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 taken to the waters edge to drop off and collect equipment (THIS MUST BE ARRANGED PRIOR TO YOUR VISIT OR IF ON SITE PLEASE CALL 01743 860972 BEFORE ENTERING THE POOL AREA). Your car must be returned to the main car park whilst fishing, allowing access for all other anglers.

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

Spring Lea is open all year from 7am until dusk.

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.

  • £6.00 for children up to the age of 14.
  • Tickets are payable on the bank or at The Bait Box.
