Morton Springs is a one hectare (2½ acres) lake mainly between 11ft and 16ft (5m) deep. Over 20 years ago it was stocked with a variety of coarse fish species, including roach, rudd, tench, bream and carp. The carp, with a top weight of 26lb (caught in the summer of 2012), now include ghost, common, crucian, grass and mirrors. Chubb are present and barbel breed freely with fish of 13lb being caught.
The lake has a number of perch in excess of 5lb.
Well landscaped surroundings with chalet (mains water & electric kettle), toilet by the lake and fishing stations provide a relaxing fishing experience.
The splendid view complements the quiet rural environment.
There is ample parking.
Morton Springs is a private syndicate.
