River Little Ouse Redmere

From the A1101 (Mildenhall to Littleport road) take the drove on the right immediately beyond Shippea Hill station and situated on a very sharp bend. Follow the drove for about a mile and the bridge will be in sight. Cars MUST be parked with care on either side of the bridge so as not to obstruct the road which is in constant use. Any other means of access is prohibited. Fishing rights extend from the SIDB drain inlet to the old Redmere PH about 1/2 mile downstream of the bridge. Both sides of the river may be fished and the boundaries are as shown on the drawing. There is an Association combination lock to the gate on the access road. Please ensure that the gate is left locked if that is how you found it. There is also a lockable barrier on the bridge for which no keys are available (Lock Ref: 7155). If in doubt about being locked in park on the Shippea Hill side of the bridge.

The River Little Ouse in all sections is a typical fenland river containing Roach, Dace, Bream, Silver Bream and Tench. It is particularly noted for the excellence of the Pike fishing.

The lake can also be reached from the Cavenham to Barrow road. The lake will be closed for a few days each year; details will be posted on the gate noticeboard and given in the Bury Free Press.
