After great times at Lower Drayton Farm its time for the festival to move our base as we have outgrown the site
We thank Ray, Val and Richard for their hospitality and wish them all the best with their ever expanding enterprise and ‘Playbarn’ https://lowerdraytonfarm.co.uk/
Carney Pools is tucked away in the heart of Staffordshire .Access to the site is via Bishton Lane which is accessed from the A51 at Wolseley Bridge, between Rugeley and Weston and about 8 miles from Stafford.
Carney Pools is a picturesque site on the edge of Cannock Chase, located between Rugeley and Stafford, owned by Chris and Carol Carney and managed by Edward Carney and his partner Hollie.
The ARENA is an 7 acre field so plenty of room for the four marquees at this years Staffs Fest with camping fields above and car parking as you enter the site
There are two coarse fishing pools known as Damsel and Dragon Pool,normally available for day tickets and match anglers. Carney Pools have facilities for disabled anglers and welcome visitors of all ages and abilities.
From the Wolseley Bridge roundabout and junction, proceed over Wolseley bridge towards Colwich on the A51, then 200 metres after the bridge turn right into Bishton Lane, stay on Bishton Lane at the crossroads with Bellamour Lane, continue for 300-400 metres and turn right immediately after crossing the railway bridge (sign posted Bishton Farm Lane), then proceed along the lane, the entrance gates to the site are about 300 metres from the bridge. Along the lane there are regular signs saying Carney Pools to re-assure you that you are heading in the right direction.
