Saracens Head Angling Group

Gayton Brook

This water is approached as if you were going to Church Pool.

Park on the Saracens car park, walk to the church car park, walk across the church carpark to the small gate at the right side of the church.

Through the gate cross the small bridge and walk to the stile, after crossing this walk across the field to a gate, the stretch is left to the canal

and right to the railway gate.


 Bramshall Pool, Drive to Bramshall and turn right out of the village (if heading for Milwich/Stone) onto Church Lane - leading to Leigh Lane.

Do not turn off this road, after approx 1.5 miles there is a cottage on your right, the entrance to the pool is on the left opposite the cottage.

If you reach a newly built (old bricks) house on the left then you have gone too far.

Mixed pleasure bags of 5-10 lb from an afternoons fishing are not uncommon and bags of over 20lb have occurred in both matches and pleasure fishing sessions.

River Blythe (Upper Blythe) 

Take the B5027 (Stone Road) from Uttoxeter and head toward Stone.
Eventually you drop down between trees to the Blythe Valley at Field.
Just as you emerge from the trees there is a narrow road on your right which is difficult to see until you are on top of it.  If you reach the river you have gone past it!
Go along this road, Field Farm is on the left and a wartime semicircular corrugated iron shed on the right, for about 400 yards.
There is a gate on your left with parking on the verge, it may be overgrown but there isn't a ditch.
There is a long field beyond the gate sloping down to the river.  We have the whole length of this field - about 1000 yards - only on the near bank but you don't need to get on the other bank to fish.
