This stretch has many weirs barbel, chub and roach predominate in the faster water with large bream shoals in the deeper runs. 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.
Approach from Chippenham on the B4069. Just prior to the river bridge at Christian Malford is a gate and large car park on the right hand side. The waters extend from the car park downstream for approximately one and half miles; (one medium size field and one very large field) plus a small field just above the bridge on the same bank to a small brook.
PLEASE NOTE THE WEIR POOL ABOVE THE BRIDGE IS PRIVATE AND NOT OUR WATERS.
BEWARE THERE ARE OVERHEAD POWER CABLES ON THIS STRETCH OF WATER.
