The Farm Lake. 52 acres set in 70 acres of peaceful land. The extraction of sand and stone was started in 1997 and was finished in 2010. Whilst excavating the lake large areas of clay were found, and left to give plenty of features to fish, including a large plateau with an average depth of 5 foot over a surface area of 4 acres. There are also humps, bars, bays and more plateaus to fish to all over the lake. As there are so many features an echo sounder outboard and lesuire battery to accompany the rental boats is recommended, (A Life Jacket must be worn at all times whilst on the water.) The echo sounder is not a necessity but will help you fish as confidently and accurately as possible.
