Situated on the A350 at the Southleigh Trading Estate south of Warminster. Please park in the bottom left hand corner of the car park to the left of the garden centre. DO NOT PARK INSIDE THE GATE

The lake has twenty swims allowing you to fish from dawn til dusk. Night fishing by prior arrangement by booking in advance through the club shop. Toilets are provided but would ask you to leave the toilet as you would expect to find it.

The lake was an old brickyard and varies in depth from two feet to fifteen plus. Pegs fourteen to twenty being the deepest.

The lake contains roach, rudd, perch, carp, tench and bream. Summer fishing will provide plenty of silver fish loose feeding maggots using the waggler or pole. Larger baits will pick out the better quality fish. The carp have been caught to 25lbs, but stay close to your rod as many have been lost due to the carp making powerful runs. The bream can be taken on the feeder with either a small cage or a method feeder. Maggot, worm and small pellets are best baits. Good size tench can be caught close in on bread, corn or meat.

A toilet is provided on the lakeside and would ask you to please leave the toilet as you would expect to find it. Fishing is only permitted in the left hand lake. Fishing is not permitted on the lake directly behind the garden centre. Any member found breaking this rule will face disciplinary action and may be banned from the club.
