Harwood Hall (Parklands)

Harwood Hall known locally as Parklands is located on the land called Parklands open space. This was originally part of the Gaynes Manor estate. The manor has been in existence since the 11th century and the bridge is a grade two listed building. Gaynes Park was over 400 acres, in 1928 most of the land was sold, but Parklands was retained as a reminder of the large manor which dates back to the doomesday book.

Becmain Angling Society have managed the lake since 1964. The fishery is stream fed, one bank is owned by the Havering Council, and the other bank is rented by the club from a local estate with a members only section. The lake was desilted in 1966 and the silt trap where the stream comes in is desilted once a year. After the 1966 desilting the lake was restocked with Carp, Roach, Tench, Rudd and Bream.

Harwood Hall is home to a wide variety of fish including Carp to 29lb and Pike to 32lb, the Pike however was not caught on rod and line but had tried to take fish from a keep net and was snagged on the net! Bream have been caught to 3lb, there are also Eels, Roach, Gudgeon, Chubb, Crucian Carp and Rudd. You might also see one of the Terrapins basking in the sun!

Harwood Hall can be fished from dawn to dusk with a day ticket available from the bailiff on the bankside.
