Fishery Information

If a beautiful location is a part of your fishing experience, Peel Hall Moat is a fishery you should put on your to-do list. Located close to Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester, the water consists of the remnants of an Elizabethan moat that once surrounded Peel Hall, a magnificent house that was demolished in the 1960’s.


What remains is by no means a major fishing location, but an attractive place to try some entertaining and challenging angling, as enjoyed by the many enthusiastic club members.


The fishery is easily accessible from the local road network and is not far from Manchester. It forms part of a tranquil country park – including a bridge that dates from 600 years ago – and is lovingly maintained by the club members.
