Northwich CW9 6AT, United Kingdom
Budworth Mere is operated by Northwich Angling Association, along with a few other angling associations. It is one of the largest lakes in the region, at over 80 acres in size.

While it is challenging, Budworth Mere has many local fans and is a popular fishing spot because of the challenge.
