The Windsurf gravel pit just outside Lydd is about 8 acres in size with depths of 6ft to 10ft deep. As you'd expect from a gravel pit there are many features including bars, troughs, shallows, snags and marginal reeds.
Windsurf Pit at Lydd CLOSED
Just had a call from Herons Park. They apologise for the late notice but they want the lake closed on Tuesday 10 August and also Mon 16 & Tues 17 August for the scouts event delayed from May.
No fishing on the night before these dates as they start early morning.
There is a good stock of Carp to 33lb, Tench to 12lb, Bream to 16.5lb plus specimen Rudd and Roach along with Eels and a few Pike.
We stocked 30 x double figured Carp into here on 17th November 2012. These quality fish were supplied by Paul Middleton who has stocked Medway Valley’s Brooklands in the past and they have grown extremely well. We are expecting our fish to do the same, so we will have a few more lumps roaming around in here in years to come.
Night fishing is permitted on here.
CADAC members can park just inside the park entrance on the left or further along, round the corner on the left hand side (please see parking locations clearly shown on aerial shot on bottom RHS of this page).
NO PARKING ALONG MAIN ROAD!
There is a small section that the owner has allocated for day ticket anglers on the campsite side, please see picture on the right which clearly shows where this area is. CADAC members can also fish this area too.
There is a toilet here for members to use from April to Nov -
MAKE SURE YOU USE IT!
