Very poor fishing, water low and toilet needs a good clean. All clubs watch out as he puts day tickets in between match pegs. There is a load of crayfish also.

Tranquil setting. Plenty of carp although not easily caught. Bankside cafe is closed and appears derelict. Toilets are disgusting! No shower facilities.

Be lucky if it’s got any 30s many years ago it was a brilliant fishery but it’s lost all it’s charm.. used the toilet would have been safer to use the bush.. shame
