Just Fishing

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

"Just Fishing" is a picture of a couple of gentlemen enjoying the lovely summer weather with a spot of angling in the fishing lake at Chadwick's Dams.

Popularly known as "Chaddy Dams" (also seen here) the fishing and boating lakes, now part of Stamford Park, were originally constructed to supply Park Hall Mill, which was on Mellor Road.

What could be nicer on a warm, sunny day, than sitting beside the lake and fishing? Well, a lot of things as far as I'm concerned, as I have never seen the appeal of it myself! I get bored sitting around doing nothing! However, it is certainly a popular occupation for many people and this is one of the most pleasant locations near Ashton to come and do it!

"Just Fishing" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

See Birds Eye View of this location.


  1. Well, I do agree with you about sitting around doing nothing, but it is a lovely, peaceful looking place and a great capture for the day! Hope your week goes well! Enjoy!


  2. Looks like just the place for a nice stroll and some photo taking, too!

  3. i also couldn't appreciate the joys of fishing.:p if i'd try it, i'll probably bring a book so i can read while waiting for fish to bite.:p it's a beautiful place.
