This would have been the original dipping pond. It is important for us to be able to use this water rather than being reliant on mains. After a clear out of weeds and some repairing to the overflow pipe the pond has gradually filled up. Water pipes remain albeit damaged that come from the stream running adjacent to the garden. The next small project is to redirect rainwater from greenhouses into the pond and to look at small water pumps to lift water out of the pond.
