Haylings Pond and Picnic Area is one of Leiston’s Best Hidden Gems!

This quiet spot is often a sun trap and a must for those who love to fish, but don’t forget you need a fishing permit to fish here (details below!). Haylings Pond offers more than fishing though, it can bring you your very own slice of tranquility, a place for you to lay back and watch the world go by or a place to sit and immerse yourself in a good book. Haylings Pond certainly takes you away from the busy high street to a peaceful place surrounded by nature, who knows what you might spot…

We would like to thank Galloper Wind Farm Fund for their contribution to the Nature Board at Haylings Pond.
