White Sitch is an ancient lake in the parish of Blymhill, 1 mile to the W of the village. It is situated in a tract of cropped and degraded woodland currently owned by the Bradford Estate. The woods are used for breeding pheasant and the lake for commercial carp fishing.

Etymology

The element 'sitch' is derived from the Old English síc ("siche" in the midlands Middle English dialect). It means a "small stream of water, a rill or streamlet, esp. one flowing through flat or marshy ground, and often dry in summer; a ditch or channel through which a tiny stream flows" and is frequently used in the sense of a boundary. White Sitch lies close to the boundary of the parish.
