Welcome to Carp.com.

 

I know Fenn Wright had details on file :

 

"Clifton Lakes is a former commercial fishing complex extending 42.4 acres (17.1 Ha) with a total of 8 coarse fishing pools. The site borders the River Avon and has direct access onto the A5.

Location
The site is located directly off the A5, with excellent road links to the M1 (J.18 - 4 miles) and the M6 (J.01 - 3 miles). Situated on the outskirts of the town of Rugby (3 miles) Clifton Lakes is approx. 1 mile from the village of Clifton Upon Dunsmore.

Clifton Lakes Fishery
The fishery was originally created in the 1980s in a joint project between the site owner and Seven Trent Water as part of wider dredging works to the River Avon. The fishery was then run as a commercial coarse fishery on a day ticket basis. The site has been fished by a small syndicate in recent years.

The fishery comprises a total of 8 pools, ranging in size from 0.6 acres to 7.8 acres. The specimen lake is the largest water body on the complex with two islands and a number of bays. The fishery is bordered by the River Avon for approx. 0.5 miles.

The site has good internal access roads, with vehicular access to most of the pools. There are designated car parks and ample parking across the fishery. Located in the centre of the property is a static caravan and portacabin, which could be replaced.

Improvements
The site has not been actively managed for a number of years and marginal vegetation has encroached into a number of pools. Works which are likely to be required as a minimum include; the removal or management of aquatic weed and marginal vegetation, tree management, otter fencing and swim improvements. Some of the pools may also require restocking.

Services
No mains services are connected.

Lease Terms
The site is to be let on a minimum term of 10 years (longer term lease will be considered), on full repairing and insuring terms.

Permitted use:- The tenant will have flexibility to manage the fishery on a day ticket or other basis, including ancillary or associated uses.
