About Us

The Severn Sports and Leisure complex offers a choice of lake and river angling, catering for specimen, match and pleasure anglers alike.

Situated in the heart of Worcestershire countryside, comprising of three lakes; the Specimen, the Match and the Arena, plus some of the best barbel and chub fishing on the River Severn. Larford fishery offers 190 prime lake pegs and 80 river pegs. It is our belief that one of the main ingredients which sets the fishery apart from most ‘commercial’ fisheries is the surrounding environment. Larford offers that missing ingredient which standard ‘holes in the ground’ seem to ignore.

Larford has become a firm favourite with pleasure anglers because there are huge stocks of smaller carp, roach and skimmers, meaning bites will keep coming all day long. The fact that every peg is capable of winning the fiercely contested matches means it’s popularity with match anglers is first class as the massive attendances at the weekend open matches prove.

100lb plus pleasure weights of fish are commonplace during every month of the year at Larford, such is the quality of sport available, with match weights regularly exceeding 250lbs. Whether it’s a case of putting a smile on your face for a few hours, practicing for the next big match or trying to capture your first double figure carp – Larford Lakes is the place to go. The Match, Specimen and Arena lakes present opportunity to catch specimen carp to 40lbs, but are famous for catches of carp to 20lbs, tench, bream, F1s, perch and eels. The River Severn offers great sport for the above mentioned barbel, which have been caught up to 14lbs, as well as chub, roach, perch, eels and dace.
