Mansbridge Reservoir

Fishery Information

Mansbridge Reservoir Near the entrance to Stoneham Cemetery, just off the A27 between Swaythling and Mansbridge in Southampton, was on the right bank of the River Itchen, northeast of the bridge. Originally a component of a pumping station that operated on the Common from the years 1851 through 1892, the reservoir provided water to the reservoirs located nearby.

The gravel walk that begins at the parking lot and continues all the way around the lake provides access to around ten swims at the reservoir. Carp, rudd, and pike are the most common species, but there have also been reports of bream and huge tench. Because of the nearby conservation area, you should avoid fishing in the northeastern section of the lake.
