Kettlethorpe Hall Lake

Kettlethorpe Hall Drive, Wakefield, WF2 7, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

The lake is small and was originally part of the Kettlethorpe Hall ornamental gardens. It will accommodate around 25 anglers with a reasonable sized car park at the entrance. Access to the water is off the Barnsley road about 500 yds. before Newmillerdam. In June, 2006, the lake suffered a large fish loss due to the de-oxygenation of the water with almost the entire stock of Bream, Crucian Carp, and Tench being lost. A fish survey carried out by the Environment Agency in January, 2007 confirmed the loss of the larger fish and also showed the water to be overstocked with small Roach and Perch that, in the E.A.'s opinion, was the main reason for the de-oxygenation of the lake in June, 2006. Plans are in hand to remove around half of the Roach and Perch and replace them with larger Tench, Crucian Carp and Skimmer Bream.
