The Cromwell Lake Fishery
Cromwell Lake Carp Fishery is now regarded as one of the top specimen fisheries in the country. Originally a 5 acre lake was created due to the extraction of gravel for the construction of Ossington Aerodrome in 1941. It was extended between 1962 and 1966 to supply materials for the construction of the A1. The lake extends to approximately 17 acres, has an undulating bottom with an average depth of approximately 9ft and a maximum depth of approximately 18ft.

The lake is maintained by a water table and spring water. Water levels are controlled via a sluice in the south-eastern corner of the lake.

Cromwell Lake was originally stocked with carp between 1993 - 1994 with the introduction of specimen carp (common, mirror, linear, leather, ghost and grass). There are 7 known 40lb+ carp and approximately 50+ known 30lb carp. Restocking has taken place in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2011. 10 x 20lbs, 5 x 10lbs and moved from stock pond in 2014.

In addition to carp, there are catfish to approximately 52lbs, tench to 12lbs and pike to 20lbs+.

Over the last 12 years extensive improvements have been made to the fishery, including anti-erosion bank improvements, landscaping, a concrete slipway suitable for launching boats, construction of 18 fishing pegs and a purpose built fisherman's lodge. A new anglers' lodge was constructed in 2011 providing bait shop, kitchen area, shower, toilets, internal and external seating areas. Outside the Anglers Lodge is a large secure car park. The whole property has the benefit of CCTV.

Cromwell Pool was constructed in 2004 and extends to 0.4 of an acre. The Pool is stocked with over 40 carp up to 25lbs and has a custom built double swim with close parking and an exclusive bookings policy.
