The Sanctuary is located on the
right hand side of the road at the top of the complex and has a large
carpark near to the stock pond. The Sanctuary has a very good mixture of fish, from small Skimmers to large Carp,
little Rudd to good sized Roach and of course a nice head of Tench.
What's in a Name?
This Lake used to be known as the 'L' shaped lake for obvious reasons and when
the lakes were renamed, this one took on the name of 'The Sanctuary'. The reason for this is because of all
the lakes on the complex, this is the only one that did not need any work doing to it and it was decided to
leave it and let nature take its course. But, after a few years, it was noted that at the back of the lake
there was a swamp area that used to flood during the winter and a lot of fish were lost in this area when the
water level dropped and they became trapped. So it was decided to back fill the swamp area and this would
alleviate the problem.
