Lot 1 - Hidden Valley Carp Fishery
Extending to approximately 6 acres (2.5 ha), the lakes date back to the 14th century and were originally designed as carp lakes for the monks. The fishery is designated an ancient monument and is currently in a Countryside Stewardship Scheme generating an annual management grant.
The fishery is accessed off Salmon Lane with a secure car park. Pedestrian access is from the car park across the adjacent grassland into the fishery. The fishery is situated in a valley and partially trees lines creating a very attractive fishing environment and the lakes have the benefit of spring fed water.
Extending to approximately 2 acres (0.8 ha) with a maximum depth of 7ft. This lake is stocked with predominantly common and mirror carp with a good proportion being original wild commons with a reputation as quality hard fighting fish. The average size of the carp is low to high doubles.
Extending to 0.3 acres (0.1 ha), a small but attractive pool stocked with carp.
Situated between Hut Pool and the woodlands, a small pool which has been managed for duck flighting.
Adjacent to the Hut Pool is a converted storage container which is used as a fisherman’s rest room (non-residential). There are two storage containers used for storage of equipment and material.
The fishery is currently run on a membership basis with 20 persons paying an annual membership of £450. The current owner has managed the fishery on a low key basis. There would be the potential to increase the membership numbers if required.
