Mellonwatts Mill

Open from dawn to dusk
Price: £6 - one rod; £10 - two rods.

Here at Mellonwatts Mill we take pride in giving the very best to keen fishermen – from novice to advanced. Mellonwatts Mill was established in 1985 and is situated by an old mill which dates back to the early 18th century and some of the old mill can still be seen to this day. The lake is set in beautiful surroundings and is approx 2 acres in size. We have a very good selection of fish such as Carp, Roach, Tench and Golden Rudd, which have now grown to a very juicy size. We are open all year round for non-residents.
