I bought the property on 29th September, 2014. The property was an old corn mill which was managed and eventually split into a number of small properties. Many of the other properties have fishing rights.

They acted for a Meloline Properties Limited who sold the property to a mr V Shute in 1996. The previous owner
I found a second document "imposing fresh restrictive covenants" between both parties... exlcuding any right or interest of in any respect of any fishing or fishery in any water comprised in or adjoining the property.
