Hardwick Heath pond, Bury St Edmunds

There is a council run fishing pond at Hardwick Heath, Bury St Edmunds IP33 2QZ

You will need a permit to fish Hardwick Heath pond. To apply for one, you will need your 12 month rod licence number, including the junior rod licence for children aged 13 to 16 years. The 12 month permit costs £15.75 for an adult and £7.87 for children under 16 years of age. For full details of the terms and conditions please read our angling regulations.

We have temporarily closed Hardwick Heath Fishing Pond

We believe that the pond has become contaminated with Blue-green algae, also called cyanobacteria, which we believe is the cause of the recent fish deaths in the pond. This is currently under investigation and at this stage we are unsure as to how long the pond will need to remain closed but we will be taking the necessary action to get it reopened as soon as we can.

Once it reopens you can apply for a fishing permit online. When ordering your fishing permit please allow 10 working days for processing and dispatch.
