Ford  

Ford is a big pool with loads of features. In the neck it is fast and bouldery. With the fly this part is best fished from the left/north bank. It has a good belly and shallows out to form broad "ford". This is thought to have been a Roman crossing point. On the north bank lies the original site of Kenmore village before it was moved in the 1550's. Nothing now remains of the old "Inchadney" village. The Ford is particularly good in high water especially around the tail on both banks.

The tail is where the original ford used to lie, Good trout often lie under the overhanging beech tree on the right.

In the distance Newhall Bridge can be seen. This was built so that Queen Victoria could take a carriage rides around the estate. Saldly is is now in disrepair, so don't try to cross it!

Much of the coniferous woodland was felled a decade ago, leaving a bit of a mess. In 1998 the team set about clearing it up. New broadleaved trees were planted and areas cleared for picnics.
