Lakes

Newbury AA has 9 lakes all of different character offering plenty of choice to suit individual anglers preferences. From small to large, shallow or deep, easy or difficult, there is something for everybody. Some are maintained as mixed fisheries, others to suit dedicated carp anglers. Most have some provision for wheelchair users, and some have toilets provided. All of the lakesĀ are permanently pegged, and the paths and fishing positions kept clear by voluntary working parties.

The Widmead complex is our oldest set of lakes having been created from gravel pits in the 1970's. There are four lakes in this group, Collins Lake, Dixon's Mere, Dobson's Choice & Knott's lake which are mostly large and deep.

Rawling's Retreat is the three lakes near the Nature Discovery Centre, Alders, Warwick's Water and Willows. The name was given in memory of Mr Rawling who left his house to the club in his will, the funds raised being used to restore Alders lake in 2006.

The other lakes are Bellwood and Pallett's Pool, which although not really a complex, they are linked by a track and are easily walked between.
