Our Waters

Westbrook Mere & Snooks Pool

Westbrook Mere was leased by the club from 1927 and was bought in 1954. It is an old gravel pit of some 3.5 acres with depths varying from 2.5 to 10 feet.

In June 1966 eighteen year old trainee carpenter Ron Groombridge (today a club bailiff) landed a huge 40 lb 8 oz mirror carp, then the second largest mirror ever caught anywhere in the UK, and at a time when huge carp were thought to be almost uncatchable. The angling world was alight with tales of Mere Monsters and some of the old warrior mirrors still swimming in our waters are from that original mid 1950s stocking.
