Brogborough Hill Pit

Brogborough Hill Pit is over 250 acres containing an impressive head of around 200 carp with the majority of these being common carp, making a change from the usual carp lake holding mainly mirror carp.

Brogborough Hill Pit is a clay pit originally dug to extract the clay used by the London Brick company back in the 1960s.

The original common and mirror carp had been caught to over 30lbs.

The venue has been re-stocked over the last 10 years and these carp are maturing nicely producing some beautiful fish.
