Welcome to Brooms Cross Fishery, Merseyside’s exciting new day ticket specimen carp and coarse fishery. Located in Thornton, on the rural outskirts of Liverpool, it has views across the Alt Valley, over Clieves Hill towards Rivington Pike and across the fields to the picturesque Ince Blundell Estate.

Brooms Cross offers anglers of all ages and abilities a peaceful, safe and secure venue – whether you prefer to have a day of rod-bending action with the coarse species on the well-stocked Owl Tree Pond, or spend a few days trying to catch one of our many elusive monster carp in the Upper and Lower Alt Lakes.

Our registration scheme, 24hr on site bailiffs and CCTV system are to ensure security and further enhanced peace of mind whilst fishing. We aim to give you a great angling experience.

In the coming months, the fishery will be introducing tackle hire, on-site coaching, and advice for newcomers to the sport, so that they can experience angling in a friendly atmosphere and safe environment, with everything needed to get started.

When building work is completed, all pegs on Owl Tree Pond will be accessible to wheelchairs. With several lakeside parking spaces and male/female disabled toilets and showers being introduced, the fishery can be used by everyone.

Register now so you can book sessions on the Upper & Lower Alt carp lakes. If you are a coarse angler you can register separately to enjoy extended out-of-hours fishing opportunities on Owl Tree Pond or if you just want a day session you can turn up and fish owl tree pond with no registration. See the Carp Fishing and Coarse Fishing pages for full details.
