This lake is situated in the Gossops Green area of Crawley. Travelling southbound along the A23 turn right into Gossops Drive at the traffic lights (just past Ifield Community College). Continue for approx 1/4 mile and turn right into Rother Crescent. The lake can be accessed from either Derwent Close, Lea Close and Trent Close and is only a couple of minutes walk from either. It is also possible to get to the lake from the Waterlea Garden area in Bewbush. There is a car park with ten spaces (including a disabled bay) opposite the medical practice at the bottom of Gossops Drive. From here follow the tarmac path to the lake (there is also a purpose built disabled swim at this end of the lake.

Please park sensibly and be respectful to the residents who live in close proximity to the lake.


Basic Rules:

The lake is CAS members only. It is ten acres in size and contains Roach, Rudd,Carp,Bream,Tench, Gudgeon,   Pike and Perch. This venue has recently undergone a huge dredging and de-silting operation so is still settling down to it’s former glory. There are plans for swim refurbishment and rebuilding in the near future with a maximum of 19 swims allocated. Fishing is only allowed from designated swims.

Night fishing is allowed but it is essential that you are quiet and do not disturb the residents who live close by.

Keepnets are allowed but Carp must be released after unhooking. Make sure you abide by club rules which include no fires, barbecues, radios and of course always take your litter home. Fishing is only allowed along the Gossops Green side of the lake as detailed on the map and NOT permitted on the railway side.

Bait Boats are permitted, however we remind anglers to respect other fishermen and users of the lake. Any disputes may mean we will have to re-consider this rule. This is the only  CAS venue  where three rods are permitted.
