Fishing at Browns Wharf in Chelmsford is now difficult

You now cannot fish at Browns Wharf due to it all being fenced off but you can still fish on the towpath side but there is nowhere to park.

The next Evening League match will be at Paper Mill on Friday 30 June

The next Evening League match will be at Paper Mill on Friday 30 June and the draw will take place at 5.00pm at the Cottages down stream of Paper Mill bridge.

Visit to Beeleigh Mill

Visit to Beeleigh Mill on  Sunday 9th July  as guests of the Beeleigh Mill Restoration Group

If you were at our talk on the 23rd May, you will know that our next event is a visit to Beeleigh Mill on the afternoon of the 9th July. From a personal point of view I have to say that I found the talk fascinating and I can’t wait to see this historic site in the flesh as it were! 

I know that some people have been having trouble with the printed website address for registration. So you can use the link below instead to register.

Registration is highly desirable to help us avoid bottlenecks in the Engine Room tours, so please register if you can. If you can’t, don’t despair, the Mill restoration group have assured us that if you turn up on the day, you will be fitted in, even if you don’t have a ticket! 

Two weeks later, weather permitting, we will be holding our Barbecue for boaters and members at Rushes Lock on 23rd July. This is always a pleasant and relaxed social event at one of the more remote and beautiful spots on the navigation. More details nearer the time, but please note the date in your diary.

You can always get the up-to-date list from our website events page at:  http://www.chelmercanaltrust.co.uk/events.htm

Yours Sincerely - William Marriage.

Leave litter – leave the club

Please could you remind your members that they should not leave any litter behind when fishing along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation. It has been brought to my attention that some fishermen have not been taking their rubbish away on the stretch from Hoe Mill towards Little Baddow.  Your cooperation in this matter would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
Jenny Clemo
Parish Clerk
Langford & Ulting Parish Council

Any of our members who are caught leaving litter at any of our fisheries will be banned for life – you have been warned.

River pike

Ian Hewett has been pike fishing on the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation and sent us this photo of a 14lb pike caught on a smelt from Heybridge Basin


Ian also caught a twenty from Hoe Mill weir on float/ledgered Mackerel which appears in the gallery.

Thank you to Ian for also pointing out that our upload photo page had fallen over, this is back up now so if you have any capture or scenic photos you want to enter into the gallery, and next years half price membership competition, you can now upload them (max file size is 2mB).
