This is beginning to show signs of neglect as quite a few of the platforms are in a state of disrepair, Janet (the owner) tries her best but it could do with a bit of an overhaul, also the weed is gradually becoming more & more prevalent. The fishing is not bad, there are two lakes, one specimen 10 pegs (carp from 8 - 25lb allegedly) the other a match lake 40+ pegs & lots of small carp. A good shop selling bait, tackle, snacks etc.


Vast improvement now as Janet & Andy have done quite a bit of tidying up weeds, trees, undergrowth & pathways. Well done


Spent a day here middle of August and could not put a foot wrong, was pulling various strains of carp 3 to 4 lb all day long, shallow fished either sweet corn or bread paste or floating crust. The main lake is becoming a little overrun with weeds and lilly pads and quite a few of the pegs were out of commission due to rotting woodwork, but still provided an excellent days fishing, will definitely return to this venue. However, considering barbless hooks and landing nets are compulsary the state of the mouths of the fish left a lot to be desired. Was pleasantly surprised at the prices of the gear in the shop, was expecting hiked prices are it was a captive audience but Green Giant Corn was cheaper than I had bought earlier at the supermarket.
