The coarse fishery was established in 1984 and has evolved to encompass four lakes covering 15 acres of water. The fishery is now renowned for its carp, with many fish over 20lbs and more than a handfull over 30lbs. The Perch have also grown to specimen size with a typical example 3-4lbs with several nearly 5lbs. There is a wide variety of other fish including roach, bream, tench and crucian carp.
