Lakes Website berners


Berners Hall is situated in the heart of the Essex countryside near the village of Fyfield, about 15 minutes from the Harlow Junction of the M11. This 24 acre farm reservior has twenty purpose built swims giving each angler more than an acre of water to fish. Stocked with over 400 carp there are now in the region of 120 twenties present, with plenty over 25lb. The biggest so far being 29lb and we are confident a few thirties should push through this coming season.
