Fishery Information

These three beautifully lined lakes in Chelmsford, Essex, are the perfect retreat for any type of angler who’s looking for a day away, in nature. A total of 10 acres of water is waiting for any type of angler, be them beginner or experienced. The main lake is 6 and a half acres.

The total number of swims available is 25, which is more than enough to accommodate all anglers present on the lakes, even on a crowded day – or night. Night fishing is allowed based on a permit. Due to the secluded location, noise and traffic won’t be a problem.
