This mile-long stretch contains all of the features of a small river, with alternating pools and shallows, and a weir pool at its upstream limit. The predominant species is chub, which have been caught over 4lbs, and with roach and dace provide the usual sport. There are also bream, tench, carp, pike and barbel reported to be present in this stretch. During December 2017, the E.A. stocked 3 year old chub, dace, roach and a few tench at the Blue Bridge in the photo above.
