Harefield No2

A mature 50 acre gravel pit located in South Harefield. The water is surrounded by good cover and adjacent to the Grand Union canal. Members can access many swims by car or by walking up to 500 meters from their vehicle, which can be left in one of the 3 car parks around the water.

The lake suffered a complete oxygen crash in August 2017 and at the present time the Society is undertaking a re-stocking programme. The first phase was completed in February 2018 when the last of 165 Carp varying in size between 4lb and 22lb were introduced. These fish were sourced from both VS Fisheries and Lower Berryfield Fisheries with various blood lines selected for both looks and expected growth rates.

In December 2019 Pit 2 was further stocked with 1500 Tench, 800 Bream, 500 Roach and 500 Rudd.

A map of the countours of the lake is available here.
