This beautiful lake is approx 3 acres in size and was dug over forty years ago, having only been used for the benefit of the owner for pleasure fishing. It was previously surrounded by poplar trees which resulted in approximately one metre of silt to buid up. Since acquiring the property they have completely drained and desilted the lake. It was also made twice as deep as originally constructed with depths varying between 3 to 11ft. The bottom varies with soft mud, hard bottom, the odd patch of silt and gravel patches. There is also an island that is made up of trees, the roots of which are embedded in the lake itself. The lake is spring fed and water quality is very good with lots of natural food.

Since completion of this, the lake has been stocked with 100 mirror and common carp between 18lbs-30lbs and 6 carp between 40lb-52lb.There are also 20 grass carp between 7lb-26lb. The lake also contains pike to 24lb, black bass and roach. The fish have been fed on a high protein pellet and boillies which are available to purchase from the owners.

The fish are not shy when they hear the sound of bait hitting the water and therefore would put the lake in a runs water category.
