Hello I am a Member of the National Trust and was wondering what is the reduced tariff for on 65 years, and can these be purchased from the ticket machine. Thankyou

Good scenery the walks around the lake are popular so keep an eye out for dog muck! fishing is from the *dedicated areas only*. Fished it a few time over the past few months small caches of decent bream and roach mainly on the feeder. On warmer days float fishing off the dam we caught mainly small roach. The lake water level was lowered for maintenance/repair in late summer enabling work to take place on the house heating system that was installed on the lake bed at the shallow house end. This did make a difference to improving catches forcing fish to move further down but since the level is back to normal the fishing has gone quiet. Otters have been seen in and around the lake as well as cormorants. A ticket machine for parking has been installed in the car park . As was already mentioned a bailiff turned up for a ticket check, the car park opens in the winter for 7.30 pm.

Lovely surroundings peaceful, the fisherman's car park is only a few minutes walk from the lake but you may well need a barrow for your tackle. Most fish caught are bream and roach with a few tench showing recently. The carp are there but not in great numbers and have suffered badly from otter predation with unfortunately no replacement stocking. Bailiffs are patrolling on a daily basis,there is no overnight fishing and a list of rules governing the fishing are posted. Day tickets are available but check for pricing. You also now have to pay to use the fisherman's car park!. Season is June 16th to March 15th. The fishery really could do with a dedicated fishery plan and overseeing but sadly this does not seem a priority with the NT.
