Wards Pool (grid reference SO 802 542) is just over a mile from the western boundary of Worcester, at the end of a farm track off the A44. From Worcester, pass through Crown East, then turn left just before reaching Laylocks Garden Centre, postcode WR6 5LP. The entrance gate includes a sign for West Worcester Football Club, who use the adjacent field. Follow the farm track alongside the spinney and park by the fir trees near the pool.
It is a well established quarter acre lake with around 28 pegs, which is stream fed, surrounded by trees and edged with reeds and lilies. It is stocked with carp to well over 10lb, along with plenty of roach, rudd and perch together with occasional bream, chub and tench.
This is a members only water, which is occasionally used for club matches on a Sunday (see full fixture list on the matches tab above for details).
