Little London Reservoir

Run by Maldon Angling society


Maldon Angling Society was established in 1895 and currently has 13 stillwaters and 14 miles of river and canal. Its location in mid Essex means most Society waters are within easy reach of the A12 just 30 minutes from junction 28 of the M25.


The Society has continued to provide a range of venues, various stillwaters and several miles of river and canal, catering for both the specimen hunter, matchman and pleasure angler alike.  Easy access and ample car parking are a feature of all our major stillwaters. Night fishing is permitted on a number of our ’speciman’ waters. The match angler can fish good sociable club matches from which we pick our Interclub Team.
