Any paid-up member of the Grappenhall & Thelwall Royal British Legion (GTRBL) will have fishing rights to a small farm pool near Appleton called Black Duck Pits. This was bequeathed to GTRBL by a local businessman around 1945 for the military personal who had served in the second World War as a place of solitude, peace and quiet to help them to recover from their ordeals.

The Pits are shaped like a figure of eight separated by a small footbridge, the front Pit being the deeper of the two with both containing Roach, Rudd, Bream, Perch, Tench and Carp. In the GTRBL Members bar there is a 14 lbs 7oz Pike mounted in a glass case, this fish was captured by Mr H Hughes on 13th September 1953, unfortunately there are no longer any Pike in the two Pits.

Black Duck Pits



Today the Pits are still fishable although the banks and fishing stages require some maintenance. GTRBL have very recently agreed to allow Lymm Angling Club Members to fish the water and in return Lymm AC will provide the required work to repair and replace the damaged banks and fishing stages and they will bailiff the water to deter poaching and protect the water and it’s stocks. 

In the autumn this year (2019) the Environmental Agency (EA) will conduct a survey and health check of the water and all being well we will be allowed to restock the water under the instruction and permission of the EA.



To fish the water all is required is for the GTRBL member to hold an Environmental Agency Rod Licence and a GTRBL Membership Card which must be shown when requested by other members and bailiffs.

Further details, rules and the location of the water can be found in the Members bar of GTRBL Club.
