Piltdown pond is a large 4 acre picturess pond located about two miles north-west of Uckfield. Piltdown pond is no longer controled by the local Piltdown Golf Club. The water is now in the control of Copthorne & District Angling Society (C&DAS). There is a transition period until 1st July 2005 where anglers may still enjoy fishing on the basis they have been, beyond the 1st July 2005 anglers must either purchase a Piltdown Pond Permit (PPP) or join Copthorne & District Angling Society (C&DAS). The water holds some large carp to 31lb, tench to 7lb+, bream to 6lb, roach, rudd, perch to 3lb, eels to 5lb 8oz and some large pike which are rumoured to reach 28lb. The water is very spacious with each swim offering a large area of fishing space to the fisherman due to the swims being spread far apart from each other. Copthorne & District Angling Society plan to make improvements to the lake including creating a new car park, swim improvements, desilting the pond, weed control, stocking the water with more fish and creating an island at the top end of the pond.

Piltdown Pond

Piltdown Pond is a picturess, 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 waters 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 waters depths range from very shallow in the margins to a maximum of 4 feet in the deepest regions of the pond.
