Leylands Farm fishing pool Pelsall,Walsall was the subject of a grant funded project jointly with Walsall MBC and Environment Agency.
A local fishing club had identified the need to desilt this pool, the first time in 40 years.
The pool was heavily stocked with fish which under license from the Environment Agency were netted and relocated to a temporary pool which was constructed and filled with the pool water in the immediate vicinity.
3 excavators were engaged in the deposition on site of 15000 cu m of silt.
The pool was left to refill from it's brook and ditch source and the fish were returned within 3 months.
