Smallford Pit VAC is a carp lake based in St Albans, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. It has a stock of around carp and is 3 Acres in size. The biggest carp is over 20lb+
A site operated by the Verulam Angling Club, Smallford is a mature gravel pit between St Albans and Hatfield. This spot is accessible via the A1 and M1, sitting just by the side of the footpath on Alban Way.
The Verulam Angling Club acquired Smallford in the late 1950s, but the road hasn’t always been easy. Smallford was nearly destroyed in the mid-1970s after a dump of commercial waste created smaller pits and raised the water levels by as much as three feet.
The Club has since spent considerable effort refurbishing Smallford over the years, redefining the banks and supporting the stock.
There are a number of features, including margins near the car parks and depths of 29 feet near Deep Bay. Gullies, gravel bars, plateaus, and silt sites make this an exciting place to do a spot of fishing. There’s also a central island.
