Tunnel Barn Farm Fishery, located in Shrewley, Warwickshire, is a complex made up of 7 pools and 2½ miles of the Grand Union Canal. We have been open to the public since 1990 and in the past two years have made major improvements and expanded the pools and the complex. Tunnel Barn Farm Fishery is currently regarded as one of the top angling venues in the country and as such has attracted big matches such as Fishomania Qualifiers, the Maver Pairs Qualifier and the Van Den Eynde clubman semi final to name a few.
