2.Piltdown Pond, Hastings
Piltdown Pond is a round-shaped 4-acre pond. The water has some very appealing features including many reed and weed beds in the margins and a section of overhanging trees and bushes to the right of the pond. The flat swims are virtually level with the water’s edge and peer between the many reed and weed beds. There are approximately 15 fishable swims, most of which can hold two people at a time. The water’s depths range from very shallow in the margins to a maximum of 4 feet in the deepest regions of the pond.
3.Ecclesbourne Reservoir, Hastings
At sunrise drive up to the car park with great expectations for a challenging pike fishing session, but rewarding walk. As it happens, the next 3 hours did not disappoint. I pulled into the near-empty Shearbarn Holiday Park and on joining the path, I was greeted with a quagmire track that, without Wellies was nye on impossible to follow safely. However, I was determined to see it through and slipped slid my way to Ecclesbourne Reservoir, where the going was a little easier on level ground. I eventually got through the woodland and heath terrain to be met with a wonderful vista across Ecclesbourne Glen and spectacular vertical coastal cliffs towards the town of Hastings. From here the undulating path narrowed again through thick thorny undergrowth, but with a handrail to assist. Further down the tree trunked steps, the path is closed due to land slippage, but an alternative route brings you back to East Hill and gentle grassy slopes either back to the funicular railway down into Hastings or retracing your route via Rocklands Holiday Park to Shearbarn car park where my journey began. Not advisable for young children or non-Wellington booted. Determined adventurist and mudlarks only in winter, but well worth the struggle!
4.Wishing Tree Reservoir, St Leonards, Hastings, Saint Leonards-on-sea TN38 9AJ
