Lofts Lake is a mature gravel pit set in the picturesque countryside of Maldon in Essex. Approximately 25 acres in size and surrounded by a nature reserve, Lofts Lake is one of the most peaceful and tranquil Essex carp syndicates you’re ever likely to fish.

The lake is made up of a number of bays, underwater islands and gullies, with depths ranging from 3ft – 14ft in places. A large island dominates the majority of the lake with overhanging trees and other features.

These carp certainly like to venture out into the larger bays and can be seen jumping, leaping and boshing out at distance.
