Oak Lake, Alders Farm

Oak Lake is set in the tranquil surroundings of Great Brickhill. It is right in the heart of the countryside, no busy roads, just unspoilt greenery and some fantastic angling. You enter the long driveway and follow it down to the parking area right next to the stocked on-site tackle shop where you purchase your ticket. A quick landing net dip and you then make your way to the picturesque Oak Lake. Teaming with wonderful specimen carp to mid thirties it is a great venue for both the angler wishing to target his first 20 and the specimen hunter alike.



Out and out runs water, for arm wrenching action all year round.
