We have two miles of The River Chelmer at Ford End near Gt Dunmow.
The river runs very fast and narrow in parts; it runs deeper on the bends.
It becomes a stalking river during the summer months. Those that know the River Wydd and Pant will see the similarities.
It fishes well for Chub, Dace, Roach and Brown Trout. Best fishing to be had between November and March.
Car parking in farm yard. 10 minute walk down hill to the river. Strictly members only.
