    Can someone give me a grid reference for these locations please – can’t find any of them on the online OS app! Thanks.

    Hi Alasdair,

    Here are some eight-figure grid references for you:

    ‘Dockacres’ is complicated as it tends to be used as the ‘catch-all’ description for several adjacent bodies of water whose names have changed several times over the years:
    Hare Tarn – SD 5180 7159
    Dockacres ‘Main Pool’ (now called something like Catch-88 ?) – SD 5201 7222
    Dockacres ‘Back Pool’ – SD 5223 7255
    Pine Lake – SD 5135 7230
    Fountain Pool (South Lakeland Leisure Village) – SD 5160 7282
    Twin Lakes (Twetfield Fisheries ? and formerly called ‘Baby Doc’) – SD 5137 7323
    Holmere – SD 5115 7444

    Fell End – SD 4973 7776

    Eric Morecambe Pools – SD 4764 7305 (but you probably know that one already).

    In the menu bar at the top of the page there is LDBWS Area Map. If you click on that and then use the box at the top right of the map to expand it to full page, you should get a list on the left-hand side which relates to the numbers on the map. This covers the main sites.
    As always, everyone has a pet name for an area, and local names change all the time, so names used do not always appear on the map.

    What a revelation! Many thanks Jeff – as you can tell, I’m a bit of a dunderheid when it comes to using websites….
