Tiddenfoot Park Lake



The lake is on the outskirts of Leighton Buzzard, easily accessed from the bypass. A car park can be used by anglers. The car park barrier does not allow tall vehicles access.

The lake is a mecca for specimen hunters. Well stocked with carp to 46lb, with at least three other fish over 40lb, it is a premier carp fishery. Recently stocked with c4 and c5 carp from 10lb to 17lb. These new fish are fast growing and will add to the already significant number of carp present.
