The jewel of the Old Mill complex, Birch represents more of a challenge to the angler, but what rewards there are to be had for your effort! Birch contains multiple 40lb+ specimen carp with Commons and Mirrors to 52lb+.  In addition there are an impressive number of 30lb+ fish present with 61 confirmed as at June 2019. Though Birch can be a challenge, talented anglers have previously been able to catch on most visits, though equally, don’t be surprised if you go half a dozen or more sessions without a fish!

Memberships are priced as a one off £50 fee. Memberships are fairly limited, so we cannot guarantee that they are available at all times. In order to be considered for membership we prefer that it is done by recommendation from existing members or alternatively you can make yourself familiar to us by angling on Willow or Oak and we can consider membership on that basis (though please note there is no guarantee of membership).
