Free fishing is available on a short section of the River Irt at Holmrook. Anyone fishing for salmon, trout, freshwater fish or eels within England or Wales must hold a Rod Licence (available from post offices or on-line from the Environment Agency). Anglers should also be aware of local bylaws on fishing.
Learn how to throw and decorate your own pot on a pottery course (week or weekend courses available). Hour-long lessons on pot throwing are also available. During school holidays the pottery runs daily drop-in sessions on painting pots (2.00-5.00).
