|20 Acre fishery situated in the heart of Shropshire near Telford. This is broken down into four lakes:
Meadow which you see as you drive in, this is Horse shoe shaped and surrounded by reed beds holding plenty of aquatic life. This is a lake for good visibilty to the lake bottom and is normally clear. This holds a good head of fish which tend to follow the wind.
Marsh is situated to the left of Meadow and when viewed from above and looks like a number "6". There is a small bridge in the centre, which gives access to the top of the "6" and holds a good head of fish with easy casting. The bottom of this is easy casting, though a small strip of pines separates this from Meadow. This lake is normally coloured but, doesn't interfere too much with the fish. Rumoured to hold some good Browns.
Lakemoor This lake is behind Meadow and adjacent to the Tackle shop. Shaped like a wellington boot, with deeper areas at the top and bottom and shallower in the centre. A smaller lake than Meadow and Marsh but is normally clear and holds some monster fish. This was the lake where Salmon were first introduced into the fishery. Easy casting on one side and a high hedge row on the other, add attraction and challenging casting but not without reward. There are some weedbeds here, which support aquatic life and are hot spots for fish too. These fish, will more often than not, nail your fly as it passes.
Lastly Crannymoor, This lake is "O" shaped with a long thin island in the centre. This lake backs onto Lakemoor via a small strip that you can cast from Lakemoor onto Crannymoor, providing there is no-one fishing. This holds some very good fish, particularly at the far side away from Lakemoor. There is a deep hole within this lake, that holds some good fish and a shallower area backing onto the Tackle shop, which often has fish topping or crashing the shallows feeding.
