Our history

Sangemere, 2010

Sangemere is a mature estate lake dug in 1873. The lake was left unmanaged for most of its life as it has never been open for fishing which contributed to its severe decline. We took control in 2010 and carried out major restoration work to restore the lake back to its former glory including large tree clearance, path and bridge construction, gate erections, swim construction, draining and desilting of the lake bed. The lake has a range of features with shallow bays with depths to 6ft and overhanging trees, swims are restricted to seven with only 5 anglers permitted to fish at any time to ensure anglers have plenty of water to fish. The rules in place ensure all members have a fair chance to fish all swims throughout the year.

Sangemere is not an overstocked commercial water, We have introduced the best English strain of carp available which have a proven track record of living long and growing well in the right conditions in order to get the best growth rates out of our carp, These carp were stocked young to establish a history of the fish through the years and are currently growing well, Membership is limited to only 25 anglers with a waiting list in operation, Sangemere is surrounded by a mature woodland setting on a private country estate, The lake is protected by a powerful electric Otter Proof fence running 24 hours a day.

A locked gate with electric otter fence running 24/7 ensures access is permitted for Sangemere Syndicate members only! The lake has regular patrols by our own management and water bailiffs as well as active estate gamekeepers and the resident gatekeeper, tresspassers will not be made welcome on this venue, viewing of the lake is strictly by appointment only by contacting SA Carp Fisheries.
