Probably one of the best syndicated carp venues in Norfolk with good access to the A1270 near Lenwade. Extending in total to approximately 15.4 acres (6.23 ha).

The Pines
The fishery has been developed from former gravel pits over the last 60 years. Originally owned by Norwich Union Life Insurance Society, the current owners purchased the property in 2008 and have subsequently invested significantly in its restoration. Originally two lakes, now one lake but could be subdivided again in the future if required.

The management emphasis has been geared towards creating an exclusive, top quality syndicated fishery without bowing to commercial pressures.

The fishery is widely known within the carp fishing fraternity for the quality of its fish.

The lake extends to approximately 10.3 acres (4.16 ha) with an average depth of 5ft. Originally dug out in the 1940s, it is known to have underwater features. The lake is well landscaped with mature broadleaf trees but has the benefit of a good access path around the lake to 25 swims. There is also a large gravel surface car park with the benefit of parking for approximately 20 vehicles near the access gate.

To the north of the lake is an established stock pond extending to approximately 0.45 acres (0.18 ha) used for the rearing of replacement fish.

The Business
Currently the owner issues approximately 110 annual syndicate tickets together with a number of winter tickets. There is a waiting list of over 100 anglers.

The estimated revenue for the fishery in 2024 will be in excess of £50,000.

Prices
The syndicate runs from the 1st April 2024 and current annual tickets cost £550.

Services
The fishery does not have the benefit of any mains services.

Fish Stocks
The fishery is renowned for the quality of its fish stocks, which consequently tends to attract experienced/seasoned anglers.

There is estimated to be a current carp stock in excess of 500. The largest known fish is a mirror carp at 45lbs. There are a number of carp above 40lbs and a significant proportion of carp in excess of 30lbs.

In addition the lake is known for its good quality tench 14lbs, pike 26lbs, roach and rudd.

Otter Fencing
The whole site is protected by an otter fence with the exception of the southern boundary. The vendor will erect a 5ft otter fence within 3 months of completion, which will effectively subdivide The Pines from Layfield Lakes.

Directions
Lenwade is approximately 11 miles west of Norwich on the A1270. Approximately 0.1 mile before the Bridge Inn turn right into Porters Lane. Following for approximately 0.4 miles, turn right into the fishery just before crossing over the River Wensum.
