This is the first pool you see when you drive up the track. At 5 acres and consisting of only 5 single pegs & 2 double pegs there is always plenty of water for each angler to fish, depths range from 9 feet along the dam wall down to 5ft towards the temporary dam. There are plenty of reeds along both the near & far margins on the road bank pegs and along the dam wall. This pool will once again become the jewel in the crown in the next couple of years, it has a healthy stock of around 200 fish which have been hand picked from all of our other waters. Both mirrors and commons run to over 30lb with the lake record set at 37lb 10oz, with over 50 twenties and many others just short of this mark. This water will defiantly be one to look out for in the near future.

This is the largest of the Carp pools at 7.5 acres and consists of 11 single pegs & 3 double pegs, in addition Middle & Right point can be fished as a double peg. It has 2 separate bivvy positions cut through at the front with a set of steps down the middle. The pool has recently been extended to include the island part of the lower lake which has been excavated to varying depths of 4 foot down to 9 foot. This lake is stocked with around 350 fish, containing many of the existing stock of original commons. To add to this there are an abundance of new young fish which are all now over the 20lb mark with many reaching high 20. There are around 60 twenties estimated in this pool with 1 known thirty being a common at 33lb 10oz which was weighed at 36lb 10oz in a netting. Cats are present to up to the lake record of 68lb 4oz. This tree lined lake has numerous features including large Lilly pad beds, reeds, islands & silty channels. After removing 80% of the silver fish stock in January 2021 we have noticed a considerable growth rate amongst our young carp, and it won’t be long until the lake produces a fair few more twenties.
