Individual records include a monster pike of over 33lb and the almost unbelievable tench of 12lb 7oz caught by Rick Seal from Cardiff in the river at Christian Malford in November 1998.
Access is from two points. From the A429 Malmesbury “By Pass” approaching from Chippenham turn towards the town centre and then immediately left into Burton Hill where parking can be found. Entrance to the waters is via the swing gate located to the left of the bridge. Alternative access can be obtained by continuing over the river bridge, along the High Street and turning left at the “T” junction opposite the Market Cross. Follow this road past the Abbey ruins to the next “T” junction turning towards Sherston. Approximately 450m along this road turn left for Foxley, cross over the river around a sharp bend and a parking area will be found on the left outside a large barn.
DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF THE DOORWAYS TO THE BARN OR ON THE TRACK TO THE FARM JUST BEFORE THE BEND
Access to the water is via the style located just before the bridge.
Fishing Rights extend from the bridge downstream for four fields to the town bridge, approximately one and half miles.
