at Wherwell Priory

about us

"England's chalk streams are the most beautiful rivers on the planet, characterised by the clearest and the purest water in the natural environment. Their flow is stately, and they are filled with a profusion of fish, of aquatic wild flowers, and of aquatic insects. Even a glance at a chalk stream lifts my spirits, and every time I catch sight of one i feel like offering up a prayer in praise of calcium carbonate. To some people it might be mreely the stuff they use to powder the lines on tennis courts, but it also gives us the gentleness of the English landscape, the pyramidal orchid, the Adonis blue  butterfly, and rivers which flow straight into your heart"

Michael McCarthy in The Independent
The river at Wherwell Priory provides a very special mile and a quarter of fly fishing on the Test in some of the most beautiful countryside in Hampshire. The local village of Wherwell has picturesque thatched cottages and an excellent country pub, The White Lion, which is recommended in the Good Pub Guide.
