Boyton Cross Top lake
Boyton Cross is a mature 5 acre gravel pit on the outskirts of Chelmsford. There are fish up to 40lbs including 12 over 30lbs and, although not the easiest water, the rewards are there to be had.
Cleverley Top Lake is an old irrigation lake that is no longer used. It is just under seven acres in size and is situated along-side Cleverley Mere in Hatfield Peverel, Essex.
The lake is maturing nicely and is now completely surrounded by trees and various reeds and rushes.
Amongst the stock of perch and pike are roughly 65 carp. They are mostly over 20lbs with a good number over 30lbs. The lakes largest resident should be over 40lbs the next time it graces the bank.
Although very quiet angler-wise the fishing at Brakes has been very good. The fish are going from strength to strength and seem to be getting bigger by the day.
The Lake can be found five minutes from the Marks Tey turn off of the A12. (Near Colchester), It is around 15 acres and is very deep. 40ft in places!!!
The lake has had a complete make over, new swims and trees planted and new fish stocked. There is now a good head of carp with fish to 38lb. At present there are around 10 fish over that mark.
