The Willows

The Willows were excavated in 1973 to provide gravel for the construction of the A12. It was stocked with trout a year later and remained a trout fishery until it was converted into a carp fishery in the 1980's under new ownership.

Additionally, the fishery features a sizable population of fish of 20 pounds or more, as well as a few fish weighing 30 pounds or more. Tench up to 12lb, eels up to 6lb, bream up to 13lb, and chub up to 6lb are the other species.
