Anybody no anything of this place? My granma lived in barnburgh and i could see this from her farm garden. I always saw people fishing it and know its still there. Does anyone know any info on it? anything will help. is it private?

Used to walk round it when i was a kid.
Plenty of big carp in it then.
Membership was through Barnburgh Wmc angling section and i think there was a waiting list.
My mate used to be a member and i'm seeing him this weekend so i will have more info then.

Hooty.

Went to look at it myself today, its brimming full of carp, all on the top. About 10-15lbs. Was just 2 groups of people fishing it with bread and minimum gear as there is only somewhere to park at least a 10 min walk away. looked really out of shape with loads of burnt out fires around it and lager cans and litter. I'm going to look into it a bit more though and find out who owns the land around it. My granma owned some of the fields but not the joining ones. Might be a investment for me.
