Fishery Information

Previously closed in 1971, Burwell Brick Pit Fishery is a 38-acre former clay quarry that is home to good sized carp, perch, rudd and pike. New owner Steve Calder and his partners have developed the previously overgrown steep-sided quarry to create 40 spacious, secluded swims. All properly prepared particle baits except peanuts are allowed here. Anglers can use up to 3 rods when fishing. Bait boats are allowed and available to hire. Barbed and barbless hooks are acceptable as well.
