Taverham Mill Fishery

Taverham Mill Fishery, the four lakes and adjacent River Wensum make Anglian Water's Taverham and Costessey complex a coarse anglers paradise.

Set in one of the most attractive spots in East Anglia by an old weir and mill pool on the River Wensum and surrounded by mature trees. It has a 20-acre lake and a fishing lodge offering simple self-catering accommodation ideal for anglers or bird watchers.

Adjacent to the lake are several newer gravel pits at Costessey, which are stocked with carp. Costessey No.2 lake is also used for waterskiing during the summer.

This combination of peaceful natural surroundings and big fish of so many species make this fishery something special.
