Frozen Brighton Lake, Eridge Rd
Frozen Brighton Lake, Eridge Rd
Fed by a chalybeate spring (visible on the northern edge) and excavated in 1858 as part of a scheme instigated by William Law Pope, minister of King Charles' church, to provide work for the town's unemployed, wages being paid by public subscription. It was nicknamed Pope's Puddle or Pope's Folly. The official name relates to the fact that it stands on the road to Brighton. Today the pond is an important habitat for wildlife, including frogs, toads, newts, grass snakes, and dragonflies.
