Restored sand and gravel quarry turned into angling site at Chertsey, Surrey

CEMEX Angling, part of the building materials provider CEMEX UK, is opening a new site, Chertsey Lake, at Chertsey in Surrey close to its head offices.

Chertsey Lake is an exhausted sand and gravel quarry which was excavated in the late 1990s providing valuable building materials over 3 or 4 years for local construction projects. Over the last few months it has been restored to create a compact and beautiful lake of 14 acres.

It is a rustic site which, since quarrying was finished, has been allowed to develop naturally creating an environment for a wide range of fauna and flora. The lake has been carefully stocked with specimen sized carp, tench and bream, important to the keen angler. And for the pleasure-orientated fisherman, there is an excellent number of smaller fish available. Stocks of silver fish, pike and perch are also present in good numbers.

The site is being operated on a season permit basis with a limited membership to ensure only a few anglers are fishing at any one time. The River Bourne can also be fished on the same ticket. This small narrow tributary of the River Thames can produce chub, roach and the occasional barbel with the river at its best during the winter months.

CEMEX Angling is committed to managing its waters in a sustainable and responsible way. Every angling site is carefully stocked ensuring good husbandry of the fish and care for the surrounding land.

Permits should be obtained from the CEMEX Angling office on 01932 583630
