St Helens Canal (The Hotties)

St Helens, WA10 1, Isle of Wight, United Kingdom

St Helens Canal is one of the oldest canals in the country and was originally used by
canal boats to carry coal, sugar and glass and many other goods in and
out of the town, running alongside the Pilkington Glass Factory, and
known to the angling world as the Hotties due to the warm water pumped
out of the factory into the canal. This giving the advantage for all
year round angling in freezing weather conditions as this never freezes
over.The canal contains coarse fish including Carp, Bream, Dace, Roach, Rudd and Tench.
