Welcome to Barford Lakes Website

Based on the outskirts of Norwich in Norfolk, we provide an impressive range of fishing across the four venues we manage. We have a total of 8 well stocked lakes holding a good variety of fish, including Carp, Tench, Bream, Chub, Crucian Carp, Golden Tench and Orfe, Roach, Rudd and Perch. Also on site we have excellent facilities including car parking, toilet block, and our fully stocked tackle shop.

For anglers of all abilities we offer some of the best fishing lakes in Norfolk and with additional lakes opening in 2007/2008 we will have something to suit everyone from the casual angler through to the specimen specialist.

School Staff CPD Session

Over the last few years the Norfolk School Games event which has had the most impact on high school pupils that have taken part has been the Yr 7-13 Angling Competition. 

The event has engaged pupils who wouldn't normally engage with traditional school sport and has given them a chance to represent their school against pupils from other schools. We have also received incredible feedback from schools saying what a positive effect the event has had on the behaviour of the pupils that they have brought along both on the day of the event and before/after. 

Whilst angling isn't the most physically demanding of sports, it does helps pupils develop lots of important qualities such as focus, tactical awareness and determination. It can also provide pupils with opportunities to compete against others and have their own opportunity to succeed. It is also a great way to help pupils relax and can have a positive impact on their wellbeing, particularly around stressful periods such as exams.

 FREE Staff CPD Session

To support more schools to engage with the event we have teamed up with Barford Lakes to offer school staff the opportunity to attend a free twilight CPD session on Tuesday 24th May (4-6.30pm) at Barford Lakes. The session is designed to introduce school staff to the social benefits of angling, the facilities at Barford Lakes and the coaching support available to schools. All equipment, bait and coaching is provided and school staff even get free food on arrival! To book a place please email your name/school/number of places required to norfolkschoolgames@outlook.com . See attached flyer for further information.
