The history of Ravenfield Ponds


The definitive history of the Ponds at Ravenfield is now available. Detailing their background from the 17th century the book ‘The Story of Ravenfield Ponds (and the anglers that fished there)’ gives a full account, together with pictures, of how the ponds have changed over time, looking at the loss of Ravenfield Hall, the building of Thrybergh and Firsby Reservoirs, the effect of the World War 2 years, and tipping in the old entrance valley, through to the more recent developments of the fishery. A must for everyone who fishes at the ponds or enjoys the peace, quiet and beauty of the Park.
