Bevendean
Home Up

 

The base of this pond, when restored, was examined and no sign of clay was found in it's original form. It is concluded that this was an example of a Chalk Puddled bottom.

It is situated on the end of the ridge which cuts into the Bevendean valley. There is an area of conserved Downland nearby.
Unfortunately it has to be fenced off due to motor cycle activity locally.

Looking south August 2001.

There is Canadian pond weed around the margins
