Black Overfalls Weir Pool
The Black Overfalls Weir Pool is fed by water from D and E Section and the New Cut. It holds chub, and shoals of good sized bream, with bream over 6 lb caught regularly. Barbel over 11 lb have been caught here, few have been taken in recent years, but the society hopes that the restocking of November 2017 will see them return to the Weir Pool and the Mill Stream.
