About Emborough Pond

Emborough Pond in Somerset is a beautiful 10-acre lake located between the villages of Emborough and Ston Easton. Originally a small mill pond, it has a long history dating back to 1525 when monks leased it for 51 years. The monks took care of the pond and filled it with different types of fish like bream, tench, perch, and roach. They relied on the fish for food because they weren’t allowed to eat meat. Today, Emborough Pond is a peaceful spot for fishing where anglers can enjoy the legacy left by the monks.
