Inworth Grange Lake 1

Grange Road, Tiptree

Inworth Grange Lake 1 is just under 4 acres in size with a lake bottom resembling a lunar landscape due to the bars that litter the water. This water used to be part of the chain of waters that were used by the gravel company in their washing process. One of the carp can weigh over 40lbs at the right time of year  with approx four other carp exceeding 30lb existing in the water. The overall Carp stock being estimated at 30-35 fish, as well as some Pike, Perch and Roach also in residence. The lake is very weedy but raking or using bait to clear spots can be very rewarding. As with access to Inworth two, please take your time on track due to its uneven nature.

20 VS Carp between 9lb and 13lb were stocked in November 2021

From Colchester take the A12 southbound, turning off at the Rivenhall turn off. Follow the slip road to the bottom and then turn right at the junction. Follow this road up past Braxted Park ( approx 2 miles ) and turn left into Grange Road. Proceed along Grange Road for just over a mile and you will find the entrance into the gravel company on the right hand side. It is along gravel track, with an old lorry wheel wash unit on the right handside. There are sign posts for Frost Fencing at the start of the track. Follow the track until you see the track fork off to the left. Go down this until the end where you will see our gate and car park.
The club is well aware that the track to the waters can get a number of pot holes, which we do try to get repaired from time to time however these remedial works  only appear to last for a short period of time.
