Blakelands Carp Pool

Blakelands lake is set at the southern end of Dove Meadow and covers approximately three quarters of an acre, originally covering a much larger area, most of the more southerly part was filled in by the Air Ministry during the construction of Bobbington Airfield.

When John Morgan first moved to Blakelands in 1981 much of what remained of the lake was covered in reeds and was barely a couple of feet deep due to silt build up over the years.

Throughout 1982 & into 1983 John set about restoring the
lake and started by completing heavy work with diggers & other machinery to clear and deepen the lake.

The lake was restocked in 1983 with 160 Golden Rudd, Mirror, Grass, King & Common Carp.

Now with fish stocks successfully breeding and well into the hundreds the lake is open to the public on Day tickets and provides a very good beginners lake as well as a great challenge to more experienced anglers with mature carp well into double figures and some 15lb plus fish.

The Lake is open Tuesday to Sunday (closed Mondays) all year, subject to weather.

Weekends are day ticket @ £10.00 per peg (two rods per peg allowed)
