Roughly 10 years ago, when camping in Matlock, we came across a big lake, no pegs, no signs up, just a banged up old farm house and lots of huge carp! We banged on the door of the big house and a little old man popped his head out and to be honest, I feared for my life.. all he said was, if you want to fish this lake, pop £5 under my door and your free to go!

Now, we fished it and had some monsters out of the place, the bottom was really rocky so we fishing floating bread crust and it was amazing fishing...

It's just behind the Holly Bush Inn pub in Grangemill, I'm back in Derbyshire at the weekend and hoping to go and have look... I can't find anything at all on the internet about this lake but I can see it on google maps.

Can anybody help?? Is this place still going?

Did you have any joy? I now live nearby, and one of the locals mentioned the place.

Just out of curiosity, did you look at the date the OP posted on? Just that one post too.
