About

At just under ten acres, Batchworth is a naturally spring fed lake topped up by the adjacent River Colne. The Carp, and Tench have reached specimen proportions as have the Perch and Eels. Pike are in abundance, and although these generally are around the “low doubles” mark, there are undoubtedly a few huge specimens which are rarely caught.

Recent works to the fishery have now produced a comfortable and clean fishing environment. The Carp over 30 lbs are numerous, and with a lake record Common at just over 40 lbs, Batchworth now has a reputation as a premier Colne Valley Carp Mecca.

Note: Recent Rule Changes (Effective as of April 2015) – Bait boats are no longer permitted and the maximum rod limit has been reduced to 3.

Opening Dates: 1st January – 31st December
