What you'll find at Taverham Mill

Taverham Mill is one of the most attractive spots in East Anglia and is situated by an old weir and mill pool on the river Wensum.

The site covers 100 acres and is divided into four lakes, a stretch of the River Wensum, forest and fenland.

Included on the site are two small weir pools, three walks and a newly refurbished visitor centre and tackle shop. Basic accommodation is also available on site – ideal for bird watchers and anglers.

A new children’s playground is located adjacent to the visitor centre.

What to do

The Visitor Centre caters for both anglers and Nature Reserve visitors.  Lots of new lines of stock for the coarse anglers have been added including Korda, Solar, Nash, Gardner and the ever popular range of Sticky Baits.  We also stock a range of goods related to the Nature Reserve from quality bird feeders and boxes to bird feed and a range of gift items.

The Nature Reserve is a wonderful haven for wildlife and visitors can enjoy nature walks and pond dipping and view the wildlife from good quality hides.  We have introduced a range of activities over the season for children from Easter Egg Trails to Halloween Haunts and bug hunts during the school holidays.

Coarse fishing is available at Taverham Lake and nearby there are several newer gravel pits at Costessey which are stocked with Carp. Lake number 2 at Costessey is also used for waterskiing during the summer.

Access to Taverham lake has been vastly improved by the installation of a boardwalk across the meadow to the waters edge. Access to Taverham Mill fishery is restricted to permit holders only.
