The second is a traditional farm pond with Roach, Crucian and Tench. The third is a private stretch of the River Wensum with Chub, Roach, Dace, Pike and the odd wild Brown Trout.
Archaeology : While excavating the new lake we uncovered a site of national significance which went public in the national and world news on the 16.11.16 also featuring on BBC 4 Digging for Britain and BBC1 Inside Out East. The Anglo Saxon burial site contained 80 plus Oak Plank and Oak tree trunk coffins with the plank burials having never been seen before in the UK. The first coffin date has come back as around 750 AD. The site also contained evidence of Roman habitation with the earliest metal item dating from 40AD.
