The Gravel Pit

Swarkestone gravel pit is a traditionally dug pit covering approximately 80 acres providing all of the usual features you would expect from a large pit including large islands, bars, plateaus, shallow snaggy areas to observe fish and deeper areas at range. The areal view below provides a picture of the lakes features. The syndicate share an excellent forward thinking relationship with Swarkestone Sailing Club who happily shared their facilities and resources to assist in managing the gravel pit for fishing purposes.

It must be stated that some of the famous stock have not been evident in recent years and as a result a stocking policy is being created.  Current stock has degree of mystery although as we near the conclusion of the first full year of the syndicate a clearer picture is being formed. Some of the original fish have made an appearance on the bank and credible sightings have been reported of some other large fish.
