The Stew Pond in Newstead Abbey Garden
The Stew Pond in Newstead Abbey Garden
Ornamental pond and canal near the Garden Lake. The pond may be a monastic fishpond, possibly re-shaped by the Byron family in the early 18th century to form the ornamental canal. The pond is flanked on each side by yew tree walks and in Victorian times it was well stocked with carp. At the far end is the site of St Mary's Well, marked today by a stone slab. The Wishing Well at this end was in use until the mid-20th century and its icy waters were thought to have magical powers.
