Chantry Pond Frome.

Post by Biggun »

Anyone been here, I’m going for the weekend end of this week. I here stories of lots of roach/rudd the odd crucian and a few carp. I’m honing my carp fishing skills in readiness for my first trip to Redmire at the end of the month. MK1V’s, 300’s and Optonics with monkey climbers.
Never test the depth of water with both feet.

Chantry pond work nears completion after work through lockdown

Work to restore the Wilderness Pond in Chantry Park in Ipswich is due to be completed by the end of next week – it has carried on during the lockdown because it was important to ensure it was completed during the early spring.

Dredging the silt from the pond has now been completed. Now the contractors called in by Ipswich council have to replace part of the fencing around the pond and ensure it is left tidy.

A spokesman for the borough said social distancing measures had been taken throughout and it had been reasonably easy to ensure work was carried out within government guidelines during the lockdown.

He said: “There was one person working in the cab of the digger to remove the silt and other staff were doing tasks on their own so there was no difficulty in ensuring there was a two-metre distance between the workers at all times.

Which visit are you asking about? Unfortunately Biggun couldn't make the visit to Chantry, he didn't miss an awful lot as the lake residents weren't playing ball that weekend!

He did make the trip to Redmire though and was one of only two anglers to catch during the week he was there, he beat me by two carp to one, unfortunately they were all less than two pound each caught on maggots!
