Pennett's Farm Reservoir

A small general fishery of about fifteen swims. It contains roach, rudd, small carp, crucian carp, perch, a few bream and tench

This water is located in Witham Road between Black and White Notley near the junction of Pole Lane.

A new car park has been provided by the farmer landlord of Pennett’s Farm Reservoir which is located at the bottom of the hill to the rear of the farm buildings.

There is a new entrance with a KDAA sign and a double farm gate fitted with a combination lock. This is on the White Notley side of the farm and there are also large signs ‘Blake Developments’ at the entrance. If approaching from White Notley, the righthand turning into the track is before a blind corner, it is safer to drive 40 yards up to Pole Lane on the left and turn back.

There is a hard surface track leading down the hill to a carpark. Access to the Reservoir is north along the hedge line through three small gates to the otter fence surrounding the water.

Please keep the gates closed at all times as sheep are kept in the fields.

The car park is currently also providing access up the hill to a house that is being built so please avoid parking in such a way that would obstuct builders lorries accessing the building site.

The old car park is no longer accessible.
