Oldbury Farm, Worcester, WR2 6RQ, Worcestershire, United Kingdom
Known affectionately as “the Jam Factory,” the Lower Broadheath Fishery has been operating since the mid-70s. This spot is noted for its fishing, but it got its nickname due to the literal jam factory that was once nearby.

Old Pool is the old school original water, packed with specimen carp.
The Sycamore Pool is stocked with carp, tench, and bream.
The Willow Pool is a match-style water with big catches.
Ash Pond is for big carp, the sort of lake that can really make an angler feel like a professional.
Elgar Pool is the baby of the bunch, a smaller pool with lots of biting and fighting fish.
