He went today and had about 5/6 Carp, all ove r15Lbs pkus some nice Bream....

Just wondered if any of the locals here had been there ?

I've looked at it many times from the canal towpath.
Very scenic lake with pads and reeds. It's rarely busy from what I've seen. The canal there is full of carp and bream, some great roach fishing too. Day ticket £5...

I have not been there for at least 30 years - didn't it used to be owned by the bloke (senior moment - forget his name) who does articles for Anglers Mail?

His name just came to mind - Dave Coster?

There's another lake on the other side of the canal.
Thinking about it, that is the lake I see from the towpath.
Westbrook mere.

Boxmoor AC have it on their club book.
