A magnificent variety of fishing for chub, roach, dace, barbel and bream. The Limpley Stoke weir is a favoured haunt for night fishing for barbel.
Follow the A36 out of Bath for six miles. After passing the Viaduct Hotel on your right continue up the hill and look out for the Rose & Crown Restaurant on the left and turn left approximately one quarter of a mile past this at the signpost for Freshford. Follow this lane through Freshford Village and turn left into Station Road after the second tight bend in the village. Follow Station Road to the end and park in the station car park, which at times can be full. Access to the waters is at the rear of the station; follow the track from the station and turn left through the gate 50m from the station. This will take you into a large “L” shaped field. The fishing rights extend from this field downstream behind the sewerage works for approximately one mile to the gardens of the bungalows at Limpley Stoke. Please note that the fishing rights upstream of the “L” shape field are PRIVATE and NOT OUR WATERS.
