Barden Lake, Tonbridge | Kent

At just over 25 acres, Barden has become a recent Mecca for carp anglers in the Tonbridge area. There's a large head of carp running up to well over 40lb with numerous 20lb and 30lb-plus fish. There is a small no-fishing bank where there's a large bird-feeding area. As well as varied depths, there are two islands and these tend to be good fish-holding areas.
