Byron’s pool reserve is to gain a new pond or rather re-instate an old forgotten pond. Retrospective land surveys of the reserve had always shown the presence of a pond but over time and with much bramble growth and fallen trees it had become very hard to know if this was still the case. This week a team of tree surgeons undertook a massive clearance of the area and discovered that the old pond did in fact exist and was still holding some water. This fantastic discovery is most welcome news. The pond will be re-profiled and the area cleared a little more and hopefully by this spring it can be restored to it’s former glory and then some!
