We offer five lakes, which consist of 163 swims. Memberships, day tickets and match booking available. There is also 2 miles of The River Chelmer for members only.


Lilly Pad Lake
19 swims. Shallow in parts deepens to 4FT. Fishes extremely well all year round. Beautiful lake to fish from June onwards when pads are in bloom.

Donut Lake
8 swims. This is the smallest, but very good fishing for the bigger carp. Depth up to 6ft

Canal Lake
38 swims. Up to 36FT across. Depth up to 5FT. One bank fishing. Good all round also known for its bigger carp.

Reservoir Lake
70 swims. Depth from 4FT to 20FT. In the summer months as shown above up to 5FT of water is taken for irrigation. During this period the fishing is excellent. This lake also produces the biggest carp & Perch.

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.
