Hi tophat,
I have dug lug 100s of times at riverside country park its easy digging and the lug are as good if not better than shop bought in size, if you go right outside the old riding school the mud is not to soft, if you go towards the strand in direction its softer mud but theres tons more worms'after walking along the wall you will find a corner with a old wooden boat wreck here you will also find rag and its not a bad spot to fish from. hope this helps ;)Trev.

Herne Bay is good for digging Lugworm and Ragworm, dig at Hampton Bay. Cheers Tbone

Can anyone clarify whether a licence is needed to dig lug? I have been informed so by a reliable friend, but my local tackle shops haven't heard anything about it....

certain local authorities (southend) enforce licences for digging, i htink just for high used public areas and safety (trenching) someone form Thames / Essex side will know more. Mudway as far as i am aware dont. dont ask them it will give them ideas!
