Inworth Grange Lake 1

Grange Road, Tiptree

See restrictions as temporary measures are in place on this water

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. In 2020 a Carp of 43lb was caught and approx. 5 Carp over 30lb exist in the water. The overall Carp stock being estimated at 50-60 fish, as well as some good Crucian Carp, Pike to mid 20's, Perch and Roach. The lake is very weedy but raking or using bait to clear spots can be very rewarding. It is not uncommon to catch several fish in a session with the average size being upper doubles.

Opening Times

The main lake is open all year round with no close season. 


Toilet facilities are availble in the car park.

Following the coronavirus pandemic If you need to use the toilet we expect you to wipe any surfaces that are to be touched prior to, and after using the facility.

Water Size

Disabled Details

Due to a recent algae bloom and low oxygen levels which resulted in pumps being deployed. 
there is a temporary ban on the use of spodding and the only bait allowed will be boilies. Please also  use these in moderation as  part of the problem was due to excessive bait not being eaten and rotting on the bottom we don’t want to go through this all again.
The bailiffs will be keeping a close eye on the water and if there are any problems we will look to close it again.

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.
