Upper River Kennet. Eastridge Estate, Littlecote Fishery.NEW WATER

Littlecote Fishery, Eastridge Estate (upper Kennet). The Eastridge Estate’s stretch of the River Kennet, on the Berkshire / Wiltshire border (just outside Hungerford) was the well deserved winner of the Wild Trout Trust's 2014 Conservation Award. This is classic chalk stream fishing, with fast flowing clear water, wonderful gravel beds, good Ranunculus growth and excellent fly life. Exclusive use days available for 4 to 6 rods.
