Best place I have ever fished. Carp go up to 40lbs. Large source of Ruud!

Brilliant fishery, I fished the second match lake and had four carp, a few tench and plenty of silver fish all day. I would really recommend this fishery

My fab venue in Norfolk. Always catch quality fish


Fantastic lake! First time I fished there, got 11lb common, 12lb mirror and 14lb common, very busy lakes, murky water, but great day out lots of serious anglers around to give you tips!



Very busy lake, get there early for the best swims, 5 great lakes to chooses from, the 3 lakes at the top are easier to fish but the bottom two lakes hold the bigger fish! Sweet corn and luncheon meat are good baits. Very murky water! Bright boilies are also good! Tight lines
