HISTORY OF BROOKSIDE FARM
David Barratt has owned Brookside Farm for more than 50 years initially farming pigs and growing vegetables to sell on Hanley and Stoke markets. In 1984 the discussion was taken to diversify and covert a valley in a Trout pool, now known as the bottom pool. In 1992 2 small pools where opened up into one large on and the specimen pool was established.
At Brookside Fishery we are always striving to improve our facilities with a tackle shop, improved walk ways, disabled access[ ongoing ], toilet facilities and soon to come camp site.
David is very knowledgeable and will advise people on the best baits to use or how best to fish our pools . Peter works part time at the fishery and runs his own Animal food wholesalers which is based on site and plant hire business,
Brookside Hire, and undertakes all the maintenance around the lakes- peter 07973 412217.
