Situated just outside Layer-de-la-Haye about 4 miles from Colchester, this is an excellent fishery, with a well deserved reputation for big fish.


In the last year, Carp in excess of 37 lbs (10 over 30lb), Bream to over 16lbs and Pike to mid doubles have all been landed. The lake holds an impressive number of Carp weighing over 20 lbs, but is also a good fishery for the pleasure angler, with fish of all other species present. Some excellent roach fishing is available at this venue. Layer Pit is has a restricted membership which requires any new applicant to do four work parties and pay a joining fee. Following the dredging operation a few years ago, access is severely restricted for the less active angler.
