About Carp Waters

Carp Waters is run by Tim Paisley along side Steve & Lisa Guy.

We currently manage two of the most historic carp waters in the UK, the Shropshire meres of Birch Grove & Mangrove.

Birch Grove : 

Is a stunning, beautiful water of around 5 acres, which offers anglers the chance to fish one of the most famous waters in the UK on an exclusive weekly basis throughout the months of May to October. Its peaceful surroundings, comfortable swims, and good facilities attract anglers from all over the UK who want to sample a true piece of carping history.

During the winter months of November to April a small winter syndicate , consisting of two rotas with four anglers on each rota, has access to the mere.

There is a waiting list in operation to join the Winter Syndicate which you can be added to be emailing


Mangrove :

The historic 16 acre mere has achieved legendary status through the writings and catches of Tim Paisley and friends, the mere is a beautiful, tranquil place. 

Mangrove operates as an exclusive syndicate, consisting of two rotas with thirteen anglers on each rota.

There is a waiting list, but we are always willing to add new people who can demonstrate the necessary experience on, so if you are interested please email
