We are responsible for the management and protection of The Glades, a 2.5 acre freshwater lake responsible for the River Shuttle. The Glades is open for day ticket fishing alongside our membership society. Please see below for pricing and regulations.
The lake itself is owned by Bexley Council who annually lease the water to Lamorbey Angling Society. In return for the provisioning of this lease we have agreed to maintain and protect the water and the local wildlife which we have proudly done so for over 10 years. Fishing is permitted by Day Permit on the non-members side of the water or open access to all society members. Night fishing is only permitted to those who are on the night syndicate which is at the discretion of the LAS committee and the membership secretary.
The lakes stock includes Gudgeon, Eel, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Crucian Carp, Tench, Common Carp, Mirror Carp and a few ditched Koi. We're predominantly a class Tench water with most fish in the 3lb-4lb bracket. Our Crucian/Hybrid average 3lb whereas our Carp reach up to 30lb.
If you've had a good catch from The Glades we'd love to hear about it! Please email your name, the date of the catch, the weight and a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
We're based in the middle of a peaceful and well maintained public wildlife reserve.
