Duttons Pond Flixton
Home to
Urmston Angling Association

 

Duttons Pond is a former brickworks claypit and if my memory serves me well there was a brickworks very close by. I'm afraid I have to own up to never knowing quite the right spelling to use - Duttons or Dutton's with an apostrophe?

Also quite close by to Duttons Pond is a hill which some years ago I used to walk my dogs. I often wondered about the origins of both. Anyway it turns out that they are both man-made. The hill is known locally as "The Green Hill" and is actually an old fly-ash tip - I'm assuming deposited there by the same brickworks.

I found this information on a BBC archived website called DOMESDAY RELOADED

"In 1986, 900 years after William the Conqueror’s original Domesday Book, the BBC published the Domesday Project. The project was probably the most ambitious attempt ever to capture the essence of life in the United Kingdom. Over a million people contributed to this digital snapshot of the country...read more and watch a video about the story of the DOMESDAY PROJECT."

Duttons Pond is home to the Urmston Angling Association.

The UAA was formed in 1974 and their inaugural general meeting was held on 29th January 1974 followed by their very first committee meeting on the 6th February.

The Urmston Angling Association hold regular meetings on the first Tuesday of the month and have a good system of coaching in place including Youth Development.

For more information including Urmston Angling Association fees and membership
URMSTON ANGLING ASSOCIATION.

Just as a point of interest I think it's worth mentioning that the path around the pond itself is actually a private path, maintained by the members of the UAA.

If you happen to be enjoying Duttons Pond while walking a dog please remember to keep your pet on a short leash - accidents with fishing poles and dogs have happened in the past which is of course very distressing to both parties.

I'm personally not an Urmston Angling Association member - in fact I wouldn't know one end of a fishing rod from the other - but I have walked dogs in the area in years gone by and appreciate just how excitable they can quickly become, especially when in the presence of wildlife!
