The Audley Parish Angling Club was officially launched on the 1st April 2014 and had its Fishing Management Agreement signed on the 17th January 2015.
The area used by the Angling Club in Halmer End village is part of the re-claimed land following open cast coal mining in the area.
Bates Wood Lake was established circa 1990 and was formed from the 'run off' water from the open cast mining.
Cloggers Pool was originally the reservoir for the steam winding engine for the Minnie Pit. The picture shows the pool today (February 2019) after 4 years of hard work.
The Club has a Facebook page here.
