Not at the side, but over the road, Cadburys is no longer trading from there. 2 Private lakes/ponds shown on map, close to Lighthouse.

The only thing I can see is The very small River Birket, have a look on Google Earth, not a puddle to be seen, let alone a lake

Behind Kirkland Kennels on Pasture Road there is a Lake, but it looks like nothing to do with Cadbury as it seems fenced off. Could this be the one? Behind fence on the left.

I think you mean the water beds on the side of the wall, going down from the station, they are on 'Cadburys' land ,so to speak , i did not know they had fish in them . I worked at 'Cadburys' for 30 years , left in 2005.

They had sticklebacks and tadpoles- spent hours there with a fishing net back in the day. Remember finding a fiver once- it paid for four of us to go horse-riding and still had loads left for sweets. smile

There is a lake, it is on google maps and have been informed that its there. Have spoken to security at Cadburys but he cant find the number. When people did fish this lake they had to sign in at the security hut.

I used to fish it when it was controlled by Cadbury's angling club. It was filling up with weed then and that was YEARS ago. I would imagine it's totally weeded up by now.
We signed in at the gatehouse then drove to the end gate and parked on the factory road inside the gates, The pond was behind the bungalow on Pasture road. If you went for a pee in the bushes, you could see the Birket, so I'm sure you can work out where abouts it's located.
The row of ponds along the front of Cadbury's factory used to be full of Goldfish and Roach and Rudd.

I think if you look at Pasture Road where Firwood Timber is.
Opposite is a house, and behind the house is a lake. Also seems like it has pitches/swims.
Pretty sure thats it.
I also remember the ponds with large goldfish, etc. They were brick sections and tiered i think.
