Pond near Railway Cottage
Pond near Railway Cottage
Looking north, this pond is in the middle of a crop field. Often such ponds, were dug out by a farmer to fill naturally with water runoff, or were formed by damming a small stream, to be used as watering holes or for crop irrigation in dry weather. In this case there is not a stream nearby.

In the distance on the right is Railway Cottage, SP7220 : Railway Cottage, and to the far right can just be seen the embankment of the former Aylesbury & Buckingham Railway, SP7220 : Railway trackbed near Shipton Lee 2.
