Mike Petty wrote in 2021: The Jolly Anglers was a fully licensed house, situated at Waterbeach Fen, about a mile from Upware and three-and-a-half miles from Bottisham Lock. The registered owners were Messrs A. & B. Hall of Ely. The house had been closed for trade since February 10th, 1915. The previous tenant had been there from 1892-1907 but was now doing his duty to the country by making munitions. He went away in February with the hope that he would return. The brewery had, public-spiritedly, not filled the vacancy. It was a house that did a good trade in normal times, being much-used by anglers. But the angling and river traffic was not so much because of the war.
