Wheatley Hill Angling Club
The Wheatley Hill Angling Club was established in 1975 and has grown into one of the most popular clubs in the north east of England with a membership of 160 adults ,30 juniors and 10 disabled – and a waiting list of several hundred! The Club is controlled by a committee of 4 people headed by Alan Hall the Chairman of the Club.
The complex consists of a club house, toilets and training centre plus two beautiful and carefully maintained lakes, the original lake named the Hilly Lake and a brand new lake named Olly’s Lake.
The whole complex is a shining example of all the hard work put in by the forward thinking committee and members who organise regular work party’s to cover all the jobs in maintaining the complex to the highest possible standards. This includes the latest design in fishing platforms, tarmac pathways and benches located around the complex for visitors wanting to sit and relax in such pristine surroundings.
The new lake (Olly’s) which has just been completed and stocked after being sympathetically landscaped with a large tree planting programme, once again all being carried out by the members. The recent addition of a state of the art windmill now provides on site power to the club house.
