Waterways and wetlands

Pinxton Wharf

Many of our countryside sites  contain waterways or ponds that provide valuable habitats for wildlife and areas for quiet enjoyment by locals and visitors.


Fishing is permitted on many of our waterways and ponds.

Several different arrangements exist for the issuing of fishing permits. To find out more about fishing and fishing permits please visit your nearest countryside visitor centre to the area where you wish to fish.

Visitors are not permitted to use boats, inflatable items or any other devices on our waterways and ponds.
