Full Description

Fishing Rights for Auction

The property comprises 782 metres (855 yards) or thereabouts of single bank fishing on the River Cocker, including the pools known as ‘Coop Dub’ and ‘Turkey Farm Pool’. The riverbed is also included with the property and extends to approx. 0.66 ha (1.63 acres).

It has the benefit of a right of access on foot across the field from Simonscales Lane to the west and can also be accessed via the footpath at Southwaite bridge to the east.
