Berners Hall, Chipping Ongar | Essex

A three-lake complex set in the tranquil and scenic heart of the Essex countryside, with two smaller lakes and a 24-acre reservoir for big-water, big fish action. All of the lakes have been carefully stocked with plenty of stunning carp, including 40 different thirties in the Res and some going well over the 40lb mark. Weed beds make for interesting features and the fish are growing quickly.
