On the advice of the Environment Agency Chapman’s Pond has been CLOSED to all angling until further notice
Over the last 3 weeks there have been an increasing number of fish deaths particularly of large Mirror Carp, the cause of which is unknown. The Environment Agency is now engaged in identifying the cause of these deaths and has advised that the angling should stop until further notice. We are not aware of any implications for other wildlife or visitors.
Please ensure all angling equipment is air dried and preferably sterilised before transferring between waters, particularly if you have been fishing at Chapman’s Pond.
We will update through the ChapmansPond facebook site as soon as we have further information and open the site to an angling soon as it is advisable to do so.
