Northlands Park


E Mayne, Basildon, SS13 1, Essex, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Overseen by Basildon District Council, Northlands Park is composed of two coarse fishing lakes to a total of six and a half acres. Best known for big bags of bream, carp, and pike, this popular lake has gone through a fair bit of change over the past few years and has settled into a well-managed area for anglers.

Roach, tench, perch, crucian carp, chub, and even eels are all part of the environment at Northlands Park. The pike fishing season opens in September and runs straight through until the end of March.

Day tickets are available. Concessions are open for OAPs, juniors, and registered disabled anglers. You can also pick up night fishing tickets.

What size do the fish go to?

The road lake at Northlands Park has carp ranging up to a reported 30 pounds.

What tactics work well?

Larger carp are best caught using silt and chod rigs. Recommended baits range from lunch meats, bread, worms, maggots, and sweetcorn. Dog biscuits have been used to catch good-sized carp, too, so it’s never a bad idea to experiment with bait.

Keepnets are allowed on Northlands Park. Anglers must use unhooking mats.

What facilities are on site?

Food and drink is available on the premises. There is also a playground for children.

Is parking available?

Parking is available at Northlands Park.

  1. i grew up fishing this venue, it was one of the best places to go as i lived just across the road in Littlebury Green. it’s best years were when Mick Toomer ran it… last time i was there (20+ years ago) i had nothing but aggro from the local yobbo kids wanting to ruin my days fishing.. sitting behind me chucking lumps of mud in my swim, and spitting on me, one ended up having his yearly bath early and i have never been back since….
