    Are any of our posters familiar with this Oxfordshire water?
    I believe that it has produced some large carp in the last few seasons and also has a reasonably high stocking level?

    I know the area called that, but I didn't know there was a lake of that name.

    The Shimano complex is in that area, maybe that's the reference? The Mailing List had a fish-in there earlier in the year, I'm sure there is a report lurking in one of the archives somewhere.(We went to Smith's Pool). But there is a web site devoted to the set of lakes with information. I seem to remember there is also a video, which you can claim the price back against a ticket to fish. I'm sure someone will confirm all this, or otherwise, if Andy confirms this is the water(s) he refers to.

    The venue I have in mind is not part of the Shimano fishery, though I believe it is close. It is a club water of some 12 acres. I know on the grapevine that it has produced big 30's this year. Confirmed by several independant reports...............

    Andy, is it very weedy and also known to hold decent cats?

    Andy, this is probably the Newlands AC 'specimen lake'. It's down the gravel road that leads to Hunts Corner (Linear Fisheries. There is no 'Stanton Harcourt Lake'as such the nearest waters are Linears Guys Syndicate and the Linch Hill complex although all of the pits are pretty close to each other.

    Mark, could the pit Andy is talking about be Vauxaull? but Mark is right Andy there are a few pits in that area all very close together, but i don't know one that is called SH.

    Yes it could be Vauxhalls, I've only fished it once probably 12 or 13 years ago for Tench. There were supposedly some big Carp there then. Cats are also present I believe. There's been a couple of cars there on most days since the season started (still observe the close season).

    There you go Andy, between us we have narrowed it down to one of a dozen lakes!!!..seriously though there are at least 6 pits in that area it could be, see if you can narrow it down with your original source, and let us know which one! i'm intrigued now!

    OK guys, it is the Vauxhall water!!
    I wasn't going to name it outright, I just wanted to see how well known it was and if anyone could confirm the stories that I have heard. And yes, I believe it does have some large Cats in it.
    I appreciate the advice, especially in terms of how many lakes are in the vicinity. What are my chances of finding it first time if I do decide to travel down from Cheshire next year!!??
