About this property

  • Access
    Access to the east bank is via a 5 bar gate which would be suitable for some hard standing for private parking, subject to gaining the necessary consent. Access to the west bank is over a footbridge at the northern end of the property.

    The Fishing
    The fishing at Boxford covers both banks along the full extent of the property, a length of approximately 624 yards and offers unrivalled variety throughout the year. The beat has been in the hands of the current owners since 2007 and since then has undergone a steady process of improvement carried out by the licensees.

    The top stretch is deeper and more suited to wading while the bottom section is shallower and faster flowing, providing more varied fishing. The licensees have been restricted to fly fishing only and there is no course fishing on the property.

    The Land
    The River and adjacent land is designated as a Special Area of Conservation and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The western part of the property is largely water meadow however some seasonal grazing has been allowed previously. Due to the fact that the property has been owned by a government research body there are a number of small sample points across the property which have been used for taking water samples.

    This land and banks total about 24 acres.
