Lavendon Mill - Downstream Section 

This Fishery is situated below the now defunct Lavendon Mill on the left hand side of the river between Olney and Turvey.

 

The Downstream section below the weir that replaced the original mill is shallower with an average depth of 4', is weedy and has a good flow most of the year and has produced some excellent specimens in recent years. Double Figure Barbel (15lb+ in 2008), Carp and Pike have been caught from the downstream section which also produces bags of quality Roach when conditions are right.

The Downstream section runs from the downstream boundary of the orchard and extends 3 fields via 2 footbridges to the dry ditch. This stretch is not for the faint hearted as some of the banks are very steep thanks to drainage engineers! In recent years we have managed to develop some cut out swims along the river and have opened up three comfortable swims in the small wooded area just below the weirpool

 

Waders are recommended to be able to fish some swims.

Members may not fish from the Lawn and Orchard below the weir (approx 1/4 of a mile) please keep away from the house and garden at al times. A locked carpark is available in the field next to the barns as you turn in from the main road.

 

No Day Tickets are available but a Guest Ticket can be obtained from the Fisheries Manager.
