This is the oldest of all four lakes. It’s about 3 acres of water, ranging from depths of 4ft to 10ft. It was originally a clay pit that was worked in the early 1900’s, kilns used to be on site as well, so the bricks were fired on site and then used locally in the village. It was used at a later date as a glass tip for the Fussell’s Brewery that finished in the mid 50’s, when it was then left and has, over the past 60 yrs, matured into a rather picturesque and enclosed lake.
Due to the fact that it has been left for so long, despite having lots of fish and some of which are very large, this lake is not open for fishing. A lot of clearing and remedial work needs to be done to get it ready to be fished.Ticket information
This lake was constructed about 30 yrs ago with the aim of opening it up for fishing. It is approx 1.7 acres in size and varies in depth again from 4ft to 10ft. It was never fished due to being left for the wildlife and became overgrown and almost inaccessible until a year ago.
It now has 12 swims including two wooden platforms that have stone tracks leading to them for disabled fishermen as well as able bodied fishermen. It was only after the New Lake was created in the field next door that we decided that it would be a good idea to clear it and open it up to be fished and enjoyed. It is a really lovely lake to be around and chill out.Ticket information
This is, as the name suggests, the new lake that was created in 2012. It was constructed not by digging but by tipping inert material and forming the lake on what became an un farmable part of an arable field due to ever increasing flooding issues.
It has two islands and is about 2.5 acres in size, again there is a depth variation of between 4ft and 10ft with a few deeper shelves in different parts of the lake. It has 22 swims including three wooded platforms for fishing which have stone tracks leading to them for disabled fishermen as well as able bodied fishermen.Ticket information
This is by far the smallest lake in fact you would call it a pond, it was originally dug, back in the 60’s and was constructed for the flighting of the wild, migratory teal duck, of which this and the Brickyard were and still are famous for in the winter. This pond was re-dug last year to create a stock lake where carp can be fed, brought on and then transferred back into the lakes that are being fished when they are up too weight.Ticket information
