Working Party


Chalk streams such as the River Ver are a globally rare habitat, with the majority being situated in Southern England.  They are able, when in good condition, to sustain a high biodiversity.

 We are working together with English Nature and the Environment Agency to make improvements to our stretch of the river.

Some of the work we are doing includes narrowing the channel to improve water flow and to help the movement of sediment.  The overall aim of the work is to improve the rivers water life and ultimately the conditions for spawning.


Both the coarse and trout lake are available for match and club bookings with a minimum booking of 15 pegs required.  


We cater for specimen, match and pleasure anglers alike and regularly host matches and competitions throughout the year.


To make a group booking please contact  John on  07774197411.
