About Us

The Beginning

Since the early 1970ís Homestead Park has been a peaceful tranquil area at the north east corner of the town with an area for families to play and relax. The original plan was to have a play park, angling lake and town swimming baths together in one location but differences of opinion lead to just the play park and the angling lake being located here. The angling lake sits in a 2.4 acre site created by a local contracting firm and the lake was officially opened by Councillor John Tasker on the 4th April 1987, the year of Immingham Town Councilís 75th anniversary. The surrounding areas benefited from new trees and shrubs which were kindly donated by local firm, Norsk Hydro (Yara).

Present Day

Since the beginning of February 2011 Homestead Park lake has been run by the Pilgrims Angling Club. This club was formed in September 2008 by four local angling coaches who met when they were all assisting with the local Get Hooked On Fishing project. Since formation the club had always dreamt of running their own facility and following a few discussions with the local council a lease was agreed and signed Following the official lease agreement the members and young anglers involved with Pilgrims AC have carried out many changes to the lake facility with the aim to provide an area of relaxation and beauty for all. The car park area has seen a number of small adjustments with the main project of replacing the grassed area with hardcore parking now giving anglers a secure area to park their cars. The pond is currently stocked with Carp (Common and Mirror), Tench, Roach, Rudd, F1 Carp, Skimmer Bream, Gudgeon and Perch

Activities

The club run a childrens club every Saturday morning throughout the year where the local children are encouraged to learn more than just fishing. Along with planned open days, the club sessions carry out pond dipping sessions which help the club members understand the ecology attached to the pond. Species found during these pond dipping sessions have included Water Boatmen, Pond Skater, Leech, tadpoles, Sticklebacks and baby roach. Activities such as this are a health check on the pond and any abnormalities are notified to the head bailiff for checking The newly created nature trail has seen the planting of over a hundred tree saplings at various locations around the border with wild flower seeds scattered along the trail to add a little extra colour to the wild flowers already growing freely. Because the trail is a natural one, warning signs are posted advising people of the rough ground. The opening of this trail has also seen the increase of bird and insect life in this area with numerous native small birds seen over the last few months. Hedgehogs, foxes and rabbits have also been seen along the path. Local residents have been encouraged to walk their dogs around this newly created trail giving them an area away from angling activities
