This pool is rich in wildlife with reed warblers and reed buntings, grass snakes, even bitterns, and a really pleasant water to fish. And don't be surprised to see a few toads walk past your rods.
It sits on the site of the old saltworks that used to exist until the late 40s when it was demolished, in places remnants can be seen.
It is a heavily weedy pool but because of this also a very rich pool both above and below the water with a steep bluebell wooded east bank and an inlet for the fields floodwater at the far end of the pool which can change the water colour overnight,
the controlled outlet runs under your feet at the gate entrance into the Weaver .
The gate operates with a WDAA key. Please do NOT park inside the gate if possible and especially not in bad weather.
the parking inside is meant strictly for the less able anglers.
