Definitely a bream water so worth trying any of the usual bream feeder methods but yes pellets over ground bait and is deep at a fair chuck.

No but it is gated when i went the combination padlock was broken but that was last year dont know if they have replaced it now check with banbury gunsmiths
I thought Banbury Gunsmiths had given the fishing side of the shop up. ?
It was mentioned last year when I went in for some bait, he asked where I was going, I mentioned Drayton Leisure on edge of Banbury, not fished it for number of years,was informed its fishing good, Got there and place closed down, no golf course or fishing, just barn conversion type houses dotted around.
