Fishery Information

Heatherton Pond was formed around 1998 as a balancing feature as part of the Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) associated with the nearby Heatherton housing development situated on the opposite side of Moorway Lane.  It is fed from a storm overload from Pastures Hill via an inflow into the south west corner of the pond and an outflow in the south-east corner returns water to the Hell Brook which runs along the southern boundary of the site. The pond is a specimen Carp Water and Carp Rules Apply.   We continue to work with Derby City Council to improve the lake and will be introducing further habitat and planting alongside a fishery management programme.
