A gravel pit of around nine acres that needs no introduction. This lake is probably one of the most famous carp lakes in the country. Holding six very large mirror carp up to 50lb+, with back-up common carp to over 30lbs. Some large tench are present, but the potential of this water for other species, remains untapped.The Car Park Lake has the reputation of a dedicated anglers’ water, where perseverance is needed to attain a capture. A real old English carp anglers’ water where the thrill of the chase is amplified by the prestige of your quarry. This is carp fishing history brought to life!
To prolong this piece of carp fishing history, the decision was made to stock up to 10 hand-picked fish of the Leney / Dink and Italian strain fish in spring 2009. The fish have been caught at well over 20lbs in weight and are female in gender to ensure that the current stock do not suffer unduly in the spawning season.
Although Italian in name the aforementioned fish have been bred from a strain of fish that have been in this country for over 30 years and when stocked really throw the weight on, producing some stunning-looking carp.
No introduction is really needed for the Leney / Dink strain fish. This cross has the classic lines of the Leney strain with awesome scale patterns to match but unlike pure strain Leney’s, by introducing genes from the Dink strain ensures a good growth rate as that's what the Dink strain is famous for - eating!
