Slipe Lane Pits

Slipe Lane Pits

Slipe Lane Pits Fishery is a small complex of four gravel pits, Lea, Railway, Marsh and Boot Pits, consisting of 25 acres. These waters are managed jointly by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and Turnford Angling Consortium.


These four waters contain a good head of mixed coarse fish, a number of species being found to specimen size. These include Carp, Bream, Tench and Pike. In addition, the pits, particularly Boot Pit, contain good quantities of smaller coarse fish and have been regularly stocked with our smaller sized home-grown Carp in recent years.


For the Carp in Railway Pit, try the deep margins under overhanging vegetation and locate clear areas in the weed beds. Boot Pit around the lily pads for all species. In Lea Pit, the overhanging marginal cover is worth targeting.


Lea Pit has a good number of Bream and Marsh Pit has a good head of Tench, feeder tactics will produce these. Bags of Rudd can be taken from Marsh Pit in the warmer months fishing shallow with a waggler. Observation is the key on all of the pits – look for fish movement.


Two rods maximum per angler. The Slipe Lane Complex is jointly managed by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and the Turnford Angling Consortium (TAC). All permits for this fishery are issued with the TAC rules, conditions and disciplinary code. These rules are specific for Slipe Lane Pits only and contain individual rules for the protection of this fishery. All anglers using Slipe Lane are reminded of the jurisdiction of TAC and are expected to read the site rules. Failure to comply will result in LVRPA Slipe Lane permit holders being disciplined in accordance with the TAC code, along with all other members of the Consortium’s clubs. Railway Pit – please ensure you do not cast over half-way across the lake, so as not to interfere with anglers and swims on the far bank. 


There are two types of Season Permit available for Slipe Lane; a Day/Night and a Day Only Season Permit. Permits are available via postal application only from Lee Valley Regional Park Fisheries Office. 


The four lakes surround an angler’s car park which has its own access track via Wharf Road, Wormley.
