A purpose designed and dug venue of some 2 acres, flat-bottomed with a consistent depth interspersed with plateaux and islands.
There are 13 permanent pegs, all with vehicle access and swim-side parking. Designed to provide comfortable fishing it is sheltered from east winds by a clay bund and from the west by a developing line of hawthorns. Despite the venue being only three years old, it is maturing nicely.
