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.
Approximately 150m on the left hand bank upstream from the A350 Melksham By-pass bridge behind the electricity sub-station. The entrance is off the by-pass roundabout through the gate near the traffic island which has good hard standing for cars.
