Barton & Walton Pool

Pasted Graphic

A well established fishery formerly a ballast pit dug over 100 years ago for the railway. The pool is approximately 5 acres, two sides dropping quite quickly to a depth of 10-12ft the opposite sides sloping gradually to this depth. The pool is surrounded by mature alder trees and has a large establish lily bed. The fishery is noted for its carp and has been restocked following heavy floods during the 2006/07 having previously contained at least one 30lb carp and numerous fish in the 20lb plus category. There is also a respectable head of roach, tench, bream and pike. Access to the pool is by a stoned track, through a locked gateway with parking behind the pegs on one side. Much work has been done recently to this water to improve the pegs and pathways around the pool.
