This water can get extremely weedy in the summer but with a little swim preparation and the use of appropriate tackle some good tench and carp sport can be had.
If you find that the gate is across the entrance drive, do not despair, it is never locked and can easily be opened, but please make sure that you close the gate behind you once you have driven through the entrance.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE POND IS OFTEN CLOSED WHEN DUCK SHOOTS ARE BEING HELD.
