Burwell Brick Pit

A mature former quarry

set in a quiet, wooded 38 acre site close to the Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, Burwell Brick Pit contains a relatively unknown stock of carp, pike and silver fish.

In particular, carp to 35lb+ have been banked since June 16th, 2013, though far larger fish have been spotted.

A pike of 32lb+ was reported in November 2011.

Rudd to around 3lb+ have been banked throughout the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

In addition, the lake is home to roach, tench, perch, eels and possibly a scattering of (as yet uncaught) catfish.

Essentially, Burwell Brick Pit has thrived on neglect, having been fished only briefly during 2012.

Since taking on the fishery, Steve and Carol have developed the previously overgrown steep-sided quarry to create 40 spacious yet secluded swims, circumscribed by reed beds, channels, islands and deep margins.

Effectively comprising two pits connected by several deep channels - the first offering depths of 12-18 feet, the second averaging around 20 feet - the lake is approximately 20 acres in size.

On site facilities include secure car parking, toilet, shower and a small tackle shop, supplying essential items of tackle from leading companies such as ACE, Taska, Middy/30+, JRC, Chub, Solar, Shimano and Gardner.

A range of fresh and frozen bait is also available at competitive rates, courtesy of Pallatrax, Nutrabaits, and Mainline as well as all the usual shelf-life offerings.

Designed to ensure optimum around-the-clock security for anglers and their tackle, the Brick Pit is protected by secure fencing and CCTV.

The gates are locked between 7pm and 7am, with member only access at other times.

Commonsense rules apply: the use of up to three rods is permitted as are all properly prepared particle baits (except peanuts).

Bait boats are allowed when used safely and courteously, and may be available to hire at a cost of £15 per day.

Both barbed and barbless hooks are acceptable.

In fact, the only restriction placed on rigs is that they should be correctly tied to ensure the safety of the fish.

With this in mind, two boats are also moored at each end of the lake, to enable anglers to retrieve tethered fish.

All in all, Burwell Brick Pit offers a secure, peaceful environment for experienced anglers to target specimen sized fish of a variety of species.

A 20 acre lake situated on the Cambridge/Suffolk border. Carp (35lbs+), rudd (3lbs+), tench (7lbs+) & pike (20lbs+), Eels (5lb+). Onsite tackle, bait, & provisions shop, toilets & showers.
