Alex thats great information and helped my curiosity no end, thanks for that, i know pine is still there as thats where i learnt about proper carp fishing. The snaggy pit you mention i had no idea of so the puzzle is almost complete.

The 23 acre was a separate pit next to the ocean in the late 80s and was dug through into one lake in the early 90s at a guess, one of the bars myles fishes on in his video is probably whats left of the roadway separating the two pits , the meadow was dug in the early to mid 90s.
I can remember looking at a freshly dug empty gravel pit in 1988 which is now the snaggy pit.
I think most of the other lakes are still there , some may have been back filled, but im not sure how old the imagery is on google maps. birch was completely drained of water when i was in there last but that was around 13 years ago

Think you are right, also believe there's much bigger than that in there as well.

I admit I have a bit of a obsession about this place as its where I first learned about weed, etiquette and what proper carp look like, so can anyone say with knowledge two things....what videos are on YouTube that have been filmed there? I think James Armstrong, Jim Wilson, Lewis porter maybe and probably some korda as I know they were on the complex a few years ago, secondly what lakes are left?
Pine
Ocean
Long island
Park
Prom
I don't know hardly anything about the 23 acre, was that part of the ocean once?
Thanks guys.
