Updated Advanced Angling Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

24th March 2020

‘The Burghfield Complex is now temporarily closed due to the updated Covid-19 Government policies – we will update you when the situation changes.’

You probably heard the news yesterday and as we anticipated, the government is locking down the country from today except for specific essential travel etc. Therefore as of today the Burghfield Complex is now temporarily closed. See Advanced Angling statement above.

We are speaking with EA, local police and our bailiff team today to implement our security plan for the Burghfield Complex.

Blue Pool and Gold Lake bookings: we will contact you directly on a week by week basis to make arrangements/reschedule sessions. Thank you for your patience – this is a situation which is being reviewed by government again in 3 weeks time.

Members: non-compliance will lead to loss of membership.

Thank you for your understanding and compliance. If we all follow the new rules these measures will be reviewed according to updated government policy.

Keep safe,


Phil Greenacre
Advanced Angling Group Director

Our Company

We have been carp lake owners for a number of years and are passionate about growing very large British carp.

With Cemex Angling selling their lake portfolio, we have set about to protect and develop a number of these fish and waters – continuing to add to our lake portfolio, resulting in a membership and customer base of Advanced Anglers.

We have had such encouragement and support from the fishing community;

“I think what the Advanced Angling Group is doing to ensure the welfare and development of thoroughbred English carp in their waters is excellent. Anything that preserves beautiful specimens and creates an environment for them to flourish should be applauded.” Ali Hamidi – Korda
