The Earl of Harrington's Angling Club Tickets

The Earl of Harrington's Angling Club
The Club was created by the then Earl of nearby Elvaston Castle in 1912 and he was Chairman of the Club.  His Estate included much of the River Derwent to the south of Derby around Borrowash.  The river fishery now extends from some 2 miles north of Derby, above the weir at Darley Abbey, downstream to Borrowash, some 5 miles south of the city. 

The river offers all aspects of coarse fishing from fast gravelly shallows (specimen chub and barbel) to deep slow stretches (bream, roach, perch, pike, carp) and grayling, brown trout and dace are caught throughout.  Double figure barbel, 5lbs+ chub, 8lbs+ bream, double figure pike and 3lbs+ perch are not unusual and anglers targeting any of these specimens stand a very high chance of success.  The river also holds river carp and tench which are more difficult to target.  

Besides the river, the Club owns Derwent Valley Fishery at Darley Abbey, Derby.  At the fishery we have 2 still waters - the main lake Haslams is a specimen carp lake and only available on a Premium Ticket and Woodrow's Pond, available to Season Ticket Holders (No day tickets).

The club also controls 5 still waters across Derby.  These are Allestree Park Lake, Markeaton Park Lake, Mill Dam, Alvaston Park Lake and Heatherton Pond, Littleover, Derby. All of these waters can be fished on a Season Ticket or a Day Ticket (both sunrise - sunset) - If you wish to night fish these waters (under strict rules), a limited number of Premium Tickets are available.  You can also purchase an add-on night permit, in addition to the Season Ticket for Markeaton, Alvaston and Heatherton Pond.

Access to all waters is excellent, with a hard surface track to virtually all the river for easy trolley access and strategically sited car parks both public and private (key required) exist.
