The Stork Pond



The junction of Talbot Avenue and Manor Road, best accessed from the A5137 Brimstage Road

General description

The Stork is a large well-established doughnut shaped pool just over an acre in size.  It originated from several smaller ponds opened up into one, resulting in areas of open water and secluded bays with depths of between 2 & 9ft and 26 fishable pegs. It is accessed through a locked Kissing Gate from a public foot path opposite Talbot Avenue across a field that often accommodates dairy Cattle.

This is not the easiest of waters but holds Roach, Perch, Tench Bream and Carp that run to a specimen size with Rudd, Crucians and Barbel also present.
