Inworth Grange Lake 1 is just under 4 acres in size with a lake bottom resembling a lunar landscape due to the bars that litter the water. This water used to be part of the chain of waters that were used by the gravel company in their washing process. It is known to contain Carp up to over 40lb (approx. 5 Carp over 30lb), with the overall stock being estimated at 50-60 fish, as well as some good Crucian Carp, Pike to mid 20's and Perch. The lake is very weedy but raking or using bait to clear spots can be very rewarding. It is not uncommon to catch several fish in a session with the average size being upper doubles.
