Blue Lias
Our Exclusive Carp Fishing Lake Available For Private Hire.

Situated at the centre of our established fishery, here you will find our private two and a half acre carp lake... Blue Lias. Named after the stone which was quarried for from 1864 by Barnstone Cement Factory.

As part of the works carried out since the purchase of Barnstone Lakes in 2017, we wanted to create a lake that a small group of anglers could enjoy together, with exclusive use and good quality facilities. So, in 2019 we transformed one of the original stock ponds and are now able to offer our Private Social Lake for hire.

Since the creation of the lake, we have introduced over sixty fish both Mirror and Common Carp. These range from 15 - 24lb.

Follow our social media pages for stock and catch reports!

Facilities for the exclusive use by our Social Lake guests include...

* Open aired timber cabin, with light and power.

* Brick built BBQ with coals provided.

* Picnic bench.

* Separate shower and toiler block, with hot and cold running water. 

* Fenced Lake with private parking facilities.

* Spacious gravelled swims, two doubles and two singles.

We currently stock Quality Mistral Baits. Another bait line will be added to our stock shortly. Available to purchase from our Cabin at the entrance to the complex.

Pellet, which our Carp are fed is also available to buy.
