About

The reservoir is one of the premier fisheries in the UK providing some of the best reservoir trout fishing by either bank or boat.

The standard of fishing combined with the retail and leisure facilities on offer such as Café on the water, tackle shop, picnic areas, woodland walks, access to the Essex Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre and nature reserve, easy accessibility by road and free parking make a trip to Hanningfield Reservoir a great day out.
It's also a wonderful haven for nature and wildlife and is renowned for its nationally important populations of wildfowl, which can be viewed from the reservoirs four bird watching hides.
For a more relaxed atmosphere why not bring along family or friends for an enjoyable picnic whilst basking in some of the most picturesque and calming scenery in the country.
