Hempstead Ponds are located off the A22 near Hempstead Lane. Traveling north along the A22 towards the Boship roundabout turn left into Hempstead Lane. Access to the fishery is via a gate on the right hand side, about 550 yards from the A22 and almost opposite the entrance to Tilehurst Farm. Look for the SAA signboard. There is a hardcore track along the right hand hedge to a second gate. Park along this track. Be sure to close the gates: livestock is often in this field. Access to the ponds is by foot through the second gate. The first pond is about 275 yards off to the half right, a second about 300 yards to the half left. See the map in the membership book. A third pond is close to the A22, with foot access only, follow the public footpath route.
