Woodpeckers is halfway along the Old Hollow in Worth, near Crawley. Look out for a Blue and Yellow sign at both sides of the bottom of our drive. The signs say Pestarrest Pest Control and Woodpeckers Coarse Fishery. Drive up the drive.

When you arrive, please stop at the bungalow at the top of the drive where signed. You'll be met by either David or Dianne who will take your payment. (You may be greeted by our noisy Dalmatians - but unless you have a couple of lamb chops with you, they'll lose interest quickly). Once you've paid, drive on and right - down the main drive to the Car Park and once you've unloaded, walk through the gate which is signed Welcome to Woodpeckers and follow the track down the side of the field. At the bottom of that track, the lakes are ahead of you, and they're all signed.
