This became a massive DIY project when we decided to buy our own digger and dumper to complete the work. Over a 100 man days later we had created a fantastic lake that has been stocked from scratch. We also reclaimed about an acre of the lake that had silted up over many years of neglect.
A new Sluice gate was installed as well as a grill to control fish entering from the stream. There are six purpose built swims to ensure everyone has plenty of room and privacy on the lake. The lake is now stocked with 150 carp between 20 and 55lb.
