Haysden Lake, 9BA, Lower Haysden Ln, Tonbridge, Kent United Kingdom
The lake in Haysden spans thirty acres and it was created in the 1960s as a gravel pit. Anglers have access to a third of the bank, which includes forty-five pegs; the rest of the lakeshore is a nature reserve.
Bream and a few huge Carp, Tench, Perch, and Pike are available to anglers who are willing to use baits that are inedible to the large number of smaller fish. River fish such as Chub and Gudgeon can also be caught when the Leigh barrier is deployed to keep Tonbridge from being flooded, which engulfs the neighboring River Medway and its tributaries.
Haysden Lake has served as the setting for open days hosted by the Tonbridge AFPS as well as periodic matches, and it can be reserved for use by either clubs or leagues.
