Raby Mere was 'created' some 350 years ago by damming the river Dibbins that once flowed through this part of the Wirral.

A mill was built in 17th century and this in turn was powered via a sluice from the Mere itself.

Used as a boating lake through Victorian times and even an ice rink in the harshest of winters, the Mere has been stocked with fish since its inception all those years ago.

Used as a Coarse fishery and Trout fishery in the past, the first stocking of Carp can be traced back to the 1950's.

Since being acquired in 2015 in a somewhat derelict condition, the 6.5 acre lake has undergone extensive water improvement work, along with silt treatment, sunken tree removal, peg excavation work, floating bridge repairs, carpark installation, toilets, electricity and fresh water services etc etc

The fishery is only 9 years old in its current form of a Carp Lake and because its stocked with quality, English Heritage Carp, the future is looking amazing.

The current stock of English Fish consists of 70+ Carp with at least 60 of these over 22lbs, 15 of which are over 25lbs and 7 x 30's. These are all young Carp and the bloodlines are made up of Leneys, Harrows, Suttons, Black Mirrors, and Emperor Strain. All supplied by VS Fisheries and Lana Springs


All the Stocked and Captured fish are fully documented, photographed and growth tracked.
