    The lake isn't used as a breeding pool any more. There is a boat hire business but its just pedalos now. I'm sure you'd be made most welcome but the weed really is a problem at the moment. Where are you based now?

    Well Smiggy, I last used that lake in 1966, then it was used as a general boating lake, including inc rowing boats for hire as well as model boats. it was also used as a carp breeding pool, with lots of ducks as well. The carp and ducks used to keep it weed free. I also used the river in the park below the waterfall where the steps go down to the water, it was good for launching my models. Do you use this site for your boats. I am interested in knowing what it's like nowadays, was thinking of visiting my sister in Melton soon and thought I could bring a couple boats. Cheers Colin.

    This is our problem. A good wind in the right direction can clear a patch but as soon as it drops the water is covered. it is quite dense and it takes a powerful boat to get through. The other problem is you can't see and debris floating under the weed.
    Is been getting worse over the past few years and at the moment e are mostly a social club.

    Colwyn Bay MBC has had great success using Dyofix to control weeds.

    It is actually a food dye and there are no restrictions on it's use in the UK

    Hi David, the Barley Straw is usually in fine mesh nets so it's easy to replace every month. Therefore wouldn't be a problem. Cheers Colin.
