At 7.5 acres, the Specimen Pool has 14 well spaced pegs which are all on one bank (see map), and much of the far bank is protected by tree cover and snags. All the pegs are clearly marked and purpose built, and finished with bark and chip.


Specimen Pool
The fish stocks in the Specimen Pool are mainly common and mirror Carp with weights into the late 20s, we have yet to break the illusive 30lb barrier but hope to this season. Over the winter of 2007/08 we have removed many of the bream and silverfish to give the carp more nutrients and food to grow on, and the result has been more consistent catches and bigger fish!

The average carp is between 15 and 20lb, we do have some very interesting Koi and Ghosts which are in the same weight bracket. We also have many Pike which are reported in the 20’s, as well as Tench, Roach and Crucians.

At weekends it is best to book your peg on the Specimen Pool, or phone one of the bailiffs to see if we are busy, and most weekends we definitely are busy!

The Old Match Pool
While we call it The Old Match Pool, really this is now a pure Specimen Pool since we removed many of the bream and silverfish over the winter of 2007/08.

There are abundant Carp, both commons and mirrors, and also many Ghosts and Koi hybrids, the weights are into the early 20s with many fish in the late teens. There are also a good selection of Tench for which we have a record weight of 10lb 5oz. There are also plenty of Crucians, Roach and many Pike.

Running tap water is available, also takeaways that deliver and shops are within a mile away.

Stayed for the night over the weekend on the match lake and caught 1 12 pound carp was happy with that considering only 2 fish apart from mine were pulled out all weekend happy days :-)


Very difficult fishing on the main lake (carp) but the rewards are well worth it bait boat or great casting required to reach the fishy areas. The match lake on the other hand is easier but can be a bit moody as you can catch 6 doubles (carp) 1 day then blank completely the next, the pike fishing Is very productive on the match lake only jacks but some bigger fish in the main lake just more work required to catch them. Membership is well worth the 20quid!! Great place to fish :-)

Great little fishery just got to use your head! The rewards are infront of you. Fish tight and locked up


simon alcock

Fish as tight as you dare to the snags, but remember carp safety is paramount so beef your tackle up and fish locked up!! Feed the bream off and you will hit good old carp
