Earl’s View is a beautiful 3 acre day ticket carp fishery situated 3 miles from the market town of Shrewsbury in Shropshire. It lies in an area of unspoilt countryside with stunning views towards the adjacent Shropshire Hills. If you’re looking for somewhere quiet to get away from it all then this is the venue for you.
The lake was excavated in 2011 by specialist fishery contractors AP Hall & Son who also created the well known Monument and Avenue fisheries. From the outset the lake was designed with the specimen carp angler in mind with there being 5 large well spaced pegs which have been covered in wood chips to ensure that you have a clean and dry stay. Earl’s view varies in depth from 4 – 8ft and there are features to fish in every peg with two large islands and reed lined bays.
The lake is situated on private farm land with no public access so that once you have been booked on you are sure not to be disturbed.
