If you wish to come for a party it's really helpful if you indicate the number of children, the age of the birthday girl/boy and your budget. I can then create something suitable for your event.

Whatever the reason for your visit to Cheshire Pony Parties you will be greeted with a warm welcome and receive personal attention. You will then be blown away when you see our tiny, gentle ponies, happily grazing in our idyllic orchard setting. You/your child will enjoy a very special time here, with the emphasis on fun and confidence-building. No prior experience of ponies is required. Yes your child will groom, pamper, decorate and ride one or more of our ponies, but a visit here is so much more than that- You will learn some fascinating facts about ponies (ask me about their ears!) and their behaviour, plus hear some personal pony tales. Some visitors tour our orchard and learn about a few of the many trees and animals in and around the orchard. No wonder little visitors want to come back every day, or that we have people visiting from as far away as London. "Nobody does it like Cheshire Pony Parties does it." - Amanda Keech

Meadow Fishery & Game Fishing No Picture

Meadow Fishery & Game Fishing

Warrington Road
Mickle Trafford
01244 300 236
Fax 01244 303 104

One of the UKs best game fishing tackle shops and stillwater trout fisheries. Fly fishing and spinning rods

Meadow Fishery & Game Fishing Shop is situated four miles from Chester City centre on the A56 between Chester and Helsby. Easy to get to, it is two miles from junction 12 of the M53 and four miles from junction 14 of the M56. If approaching from Chester on the A56, Meadow Fishery is through Mickle Trafford Village, just past Deeside Sawmills on the left hand side. If you get to the Shrewsbury Arms or the Nags Head you have gone too far. Approaching on the A56 from the Helsby side, you want to look out for the Nags Head pub, then cross over the River Gowy , pass the Shrewsbury Arms and we are just on the right 100 yards after the pub. Ordnance Survey map reference for the Meadow Fishery: SJ 449 705 Member of Association of Game Fishery Managers

Back in 1980, John Percival graduated from Aberystwyth University with a degree in geology and decided then to go into business with his parents, Peter & Joyce, who had just moved to Meadow Farm. After a few years of more conventional farming it was suggested by John's Uncle, David Humphreys, to look at starting a Trout Fishery. After much research into the project and into fly fishing itself (John used to canoe the Rheidol and the Ystwyth rather than fish them. Until now, a closely guarded secret!). The Site of Meadow Lake in 1980 The start of the excavation of Meadow Lake in 1983 Meadow lake took six months to excavate through the winter of 1983/84 and care was taken to design the lake and its surroundings to make it look as natural as possible -15 years on you would think it has been there for centuries. Two thousand trees and shrubs were planted in the surrounding land providing a habitat for a diverse range of wildlife. Eventually Meadow Fishery opened in the April of 1984 - one 5 acre lake and no shop! The next lake, Willow, was added in 1989 and finally Mallard Lake opened in 1997 having been created purely by John and Fishery Manager Vince Lewis. Willow Lake before it began to fill Celebrations as Mallard is finished Willow Lake emptied for maintenance work, Summer 2003
